The Munnings Art Museum

Sir Alfred Munnings (1878-1959) was a major figure in the great tradition of English equestrian art, and celebrated for his representations of English rural life in the first half of the 20th century. Immensely successful, yet controversial, he became the scourge of modern art in his position as President of the Royal Academy.

Munnings Painting DedhamVisitors to the Munnings Art Museum at his former home, Castle House, can explore the life and work of this prolific East Anglian artist in the home he called ‘the house of my dreams’.

Hung throughout the elegant rooms of this Tudor and Georgian house is a series of carefully curated displays, selected from a large and significant collection of Munnings’ work. Visitors can get a sense of the working artist from his surviving studio in the grounds; and learn more about the man and from original furniture, photographs and personal items, all of which are still in place in Castle House.

Our knowledgeable guides are on hand during public opening hours, while groups can book an exclusive out-of-hours visit with a highlights talk.
