Watch: UCL Flaxman and Octagon galleries unveiled

27 November 2012

UCL's Flaxman Gallery and Octagon Gallery have reopened after bold transformations.

Artist John Flaxman's plaster study 'St Michael Overcoming Satan' now stands on a glass plinth and the Octagon Gallery has radically changed with new cases, animations and interactive screens to display treasures from UCL's museums collections.
