Latest news

We are closed to the public exceptionally until April 2015 for refurbishment works. UCL Art Museum was awarded a DCMS/Wolfson Museums and Galleries Improvement Fund grant, a major grant from the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), as well as other matching funds.

With this support, we will be able to improve our multi-functional space for teaching, research and public engagement. At UCL Art Museum, we have been experimenting with the transformation of the traditional print room to a multi-use museum environment for some years. The award will enable us to balance the competing demands of access and conservation while providing a unique visitor experience and educational environment.


Booking is now open for UCL Art Museum on Tour public programmes for 2015.
