Re-opening of Main Entrance and Gallery 1

From 4 June the Main Entrance to the Museum has been temporarily closed while scaffolding has been removed. 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.

Inside the Museum, our planned conservation work continues with a major refurbishment programme for the lantern cover, the decoration within the lantern and the elaborate ceiling of Gallery 3 - one of the finest classical structures of its date in existence.

The work will result in Galleries 2 and 3 being closed for the remainder of the year.
