Museums and galleries

The cultural big hitter in Bedford is the Higgins Art Gallery and Museum, whose redevelopment in 2013 brought three buildings together and made space for temporary exhibitions and learning activities alongside the permanent collections. You’ll find it in Bedford’s Castle Quarter, near the centre of town.

Just opposite is a museum and library dedicated to Bedford resident John Bunyan, on the site of the barn in which Bunyan himself preached.
