“You can’t use up creativity. The more the you use, the more you have.” - Maya Angelou
Take a look inside the obsessive, compulsive and constantly evolving collection of art, sculpture and objects from David and Yuge Bromley. A showcase of various artists’s works and stories that form a landscape in Australian and International cultural history.
Explore the 2 hectares of beautiful landscaped gardens and courtyards and wrap your head around the history embedded in the 1861 heritage Old Castlemaine Gaol within which a new interpretation exists, one that celebrates life, joy and art.
We are a privately owned and run museum, the collection is deeply personal and diverse. It has not gone through the lens of a curator, but rather the rattling minds of two people who are pure and simply consumed with art and creative output. We wanted to shift the axis of what the Gaol was known for, a place of despair, sadness and trauma into a place that evoked a sense of life, joy and art.
