Treasury Re-Opens for the Summer

28th May 2021

Welcoming visitors

Treasury re-opens its doors to the public on Monday 21 June, after a long period in lockdown.  The museum will be open every day from 2pm to 4pm. Entry is free of charge and there is no need to book but social distancing measures will be in place.

While the museum has been closed to visitors, the Treasury team has worked to ensure that even more of our objects are available to view online. There is also a new virtual tour of the galleries to explore.

What's on

On display in Treasury are the school’s collections of art and archaeology, including artefacts from Egypt, Greece and Rome, Chinese ceramics from the Tang to Qing dynasties, and works of art from the medieval College. The museum is housed in the Warden’s Stables, accessed from the main entrance to the school on College Street.

Alongside our permanent displays, we will be opening with a special exhibition, curated by pupils at the school: An Age of Exploration, 1400-1600. This exhibition looks at European voyages in the 15th and 16th centuries, and how they changed the world. A combination of art, artefacts, navigational tools, and books from the Middle Ages onwards explores the intellectual and artistic culture of Europe before and after the voyages, and shows what made global travel possible. 

We welcome enquiries from schools and special interest groups, and can tailor visits in partnership with teachers and group leaders.  For more information, please contact the Museum Manager.
