Coronavirus COVID-19 update

**The Museum remains closed to visitors until further notice**

Although it is now legal for UK museums to re-open, the College has still not set a date for re-opening the museum to visitors and researchers. A plan for a phased re-opening will be published on this website as soon as possible. All other museum services (enquiries, acquistions, sales, image-licensing etc.) have continued to operate as normal and the curator is on-site three days a week.
