The Leamington Spa Art Gallery & Museum is an art gallery and museum housed inside Leamington Spa’s historic Royal Pump Rooms. It is home to a surprisingly good collection of contemporary art and the museum also has displays of local history and culture.

What to see at Leamington Spa Art Gallery & Museum

The museum is located inside the historic Royal Pump Rooms, which is Leamington Spa’s raison d’être. The Royal Pump Rooms is the building that housed the most famous of the spa baths that attracted visitors to Leamington Spa from the late 18th to the mid-19th centuries. Nowadays, the building is home to the tourist information centre, assembly rooms, a cafe, a library and the Leamington Spa Art Gallery & Museum.

The Local History Gallery, inside the former Turkish Baths, comprises the main part of the museum. This gallery shows how Leamington Spa grew into an elegant spa resort during the 18th and19th centuries and it demonstrates the importance of the spa baths during that period.

Haddie’s Gallery is an exhibition space geared towards children, which teaches them what life would have been like in Leamington Spa during the Victorian era.

The main part of the art gallery focuses mostly on contemporary art and it features works by artists including Terry Atkinson, Christine Borland, Keith Coventry, Damien Hurst, Marc Quinn, Gillian Wearing and Bill Woodrow. There is also a part of the art gallery that is used to host a programme of temporary exhibitions.
