Following the Prime Minister’s announcement, we will be temporarily closing the institution on the 5th of November for one month. We are planning to open again on the 3rd of December.
We will be running an online programme during this short period of closure for our members and supporters.
If you are beginning to tire of the present lockdown you may perhaps find some solace in this little book of travels in the boudoir, or how to travel the world without leaving the house - something, it would seem, that women especially were rather good at in the early 19th century.
A fun way to engage with our collections, whatever your age. These pictures are newly-digitised illustrations from Our Region Revealed project. Each puzzle can be adapted from a 6-piece puzzle for little ones to a 1000-piece puzzle for experts - you decide!
Your legacy will make a lasting difference. Members and supporters like you, who love the Institution and want to play a vital part in its future, can help us to continue our charitable work in public learning and engagement and to preserve the Institution's beautiful building and remarkable collections for future generations.
