Nature in Art Gallery and Museum

Welcome to Nature in Art, the world’s first museum and art gallery dedicated to fine, decorative and applied art inspired by nature.

Our unrivalled collection is housed in a fine Georgian mansion, featured in Simon Jenkins’s book ‘England’s 1000 Best Houses’, just outside the famous cathedral city of Gloucester.

This website gives you a glimpse of Nature in Art, its collections and exhibitions, and the extensive programme of events and activities that take place throughout the year.

Open: Tuesday – Sunday 10am – 5pm and B.Hols.  Find us 2m north of Gloucester on A38.
