Due to the Coronavirus pandemic we have made the decision not to open on 1st April 2020 and will remain closed until further notice.

The magnolia and cherry are starting to blossom in the museum grounds and we shall sorely miss welcoming you all to a spring filled Dedham. We truly hope to see you later in the year.

Updates will appear here on the website and via our answerphone message.

The office currently remains operational but we encourage
you to email rather than contact us by phone.

SPECIAL EXHIBITION: YOURS WITH LOVE, AJ
2020

When Alfred Munnings married his second wife Violet in April 1920 his reputation as a notable equestrian portraitist was flourishing. As a result of this he was frequently away from home for extended periods and he wrote home to his new wife of these experiences. In 2020 the museum’s displays will be interwoven with original correspondence, preparatory sketches and finished works that relate to this time.

The museum is also publishing a unique volume of the fifty of these hitherto unpublished and generally unseen personal letters written between 1920 and 1922. The letters reveal much about Munnings himself, his personality, his opinions, interests and beliefs and his working practices; they also provide an insight into the times in which he lived and in particular the aristocratic world of his patrons.

The museum offers changing displays from its large and significant collection of life’s works by Sir Alfred Munnings (P.P.R.A.).

Over 200 paintings, drawings and sculpture are displayed each year throughout eight rooms of the artist’s former home and working studio offering a complete survey of his artistic development.

Furniture, personal items and other ephemera remain in situ much as if Sir Alfred and his wife were still in residence.
