The Burton Art Gallery and Museum aims to be recognised as one of the leading cultural venues within the South West. Synonymous with the most exemplary forms of its practice and attracting a wide range of audiences of all ages from the local and international communities alike it provides the opportunity to access and engage with artists, collections and exhibitions on all levels.

It does this by;

Bringing into the region and initiating exhibitions of significance that enable visitors to see aspects of British and foreign material not represented within its permanent collections.

Collecting, safeguarding and making accessible artefacts and artworks, with specific relation to local artists, local landscape or heritage and local interests.

Putting education at the core of the organisation enabling all our visitors and users to engage with our collections and exhibitions for inspiration, learning, research and enjoyment.

The Burton Art Gallery and Museum consists of Bideford Museum display area, temporary exhibition spaces, craft gallery, gallery and local gift shop, education space, tourist information and Cafe du Parc.
