In Bushey, a town of 24,000 in Hertfordshire, is the Bushey Museum & Art Gallery.

Bushey has a unique artistic history and what you will find in the Bushey Museum is directly related to this unique history.

Hubert von Herkomer, born in Bavaria and having lived in the United States and Europe, founded the Herkomer School in 1883 in Bushey. The Herkomer School became known in the art world and attracted some 500 students to Bushey, some of whom stayed in the area and further developed the local art scene.

The Bushey Museum and Art Gallery houses a large number of works by Von Herkomer as well as works by Lucy Kemp-Welch who took over direction of the Herkomer School upon the death of Hubert von Herkomer.

Also on display at the Bushey Museum are items that tell the story of Bushey's history, these items include historic maps and locally made products.
