The Katritzky Lecture 2013: The New Ashmolean

09-05-2013 (18:30)

The Ashmolean Museum in Oxford is Britain’s oldest public museum, and possibly the oldest museum in the world.  In November 2009 it reopened following a 9-month period of closure and a £61 million redevelopment.  Professor Christopher Brown CBE, Director of the Ashmolean, will talk about the transformative project which has created a new 100,000 square foot building behind the famous 19th-century Cockerell façade.  The new building houses 39 new galleries, including four for temporary exhibitions; a dedicated Education Centre; state-of-the-art conservation studios; and the City’s first roof-top restaurant.
