Visit UCL Art Museum

We are closed to the public exceptionally from 27 June 2014 to 12 January 2015 for refurbishment works. With the support of a DCMS/Wolfson Museums and Galleries Improvement Fund grant, 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.

As part of the works, we will improve our lighting and develop innovative display strategies allowing for greater access to our collection of prize-winning artworks from the Slade School of Fine Art, as well as our unique collection of plaster models by acclaimed neo-classical artist John Flaxman.

While we are closed, please send any request for information to
