Museum of Enfield - The Dugdale Centre, 39 London Road, Enfield EN2 6DS
About the exhibition:
Broomfield House has a history stretching back to the 16thcentury, with some notable owners. Along with the surrounding park, it was bought for public use in 1903. The House sadly suffered a number of fires but key items were salvaged and stored with the aim of restoration.
Many people have fond memories of this once loved building, its museum, art displays, café and baby clinic.
This exhibition will explore the history of Broomfield House to the present day, bringing the house and landscape back to life through photographs, paintings and objects.
It will be a rare chance to see a newly restored section of the Baroque Lanscroon murals, and re-discover one of Enfield’s long lost treasures.
The exhibition has child friendly activities and interpretation suitable for all.
This is co-organised with The Broomfield House Trust, supported by The Enfield Society.
