Contemporary art gallery

A new display of art from the 20th and 21st centuries can be viewed in Gallery 11.

Queen Victoria sculpture

Sir Alfred Gilbert's marble bust of Queen Victoria has been saved for the nation after the necessary money was raised to prevent it being exported to New York.

We are delighted to announce that from Tuesday 14 August the Main Entrance of the Museum, complete with sculpture, will be re-opened to the public, as will Gallery 1.
