About the Museum

Founded in 1753, England’s preeminent art institution is a legend and a legacy, with both a storied past and a vibrant present. Visiting the museum is a centuries-old tradition: gaze on treasures that have inspired generations, including the Rosetta Stone, history’s most extraordinary cipher, and such timeless paragons of beauty as the sculptures from the Parthenon frieze. Recent renovations and a new generation of world-class curators have infused new life into the museum's extensive permanent holdings, while its ongoing special exhibitions are among the most ambitious anywhere.
