#BHGMemory

On the 30th September 2015, Broadfield House Glass Museum closed its doors for the final time. The closure of the museum is in preparation for the new museum at the White House Cone.  

Broadfield House Glass Museum was open for 35 years, 5 months and 29 days and attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors, each taking away a unique memory of a rare collection in a special home. To celebrate its legacy we are asking you to share any pictures you may have of the museum.

Using #BHGMemory you can tweet us @Glass_museum or add it to the Broadfield House Glass Museum group on flickr. By sharing your images you agree to DMBC museum service retaining the image and using it in the future.
