Museums & Wellbeing Week

Our collection gives an excellent overview of the main threads that have run through art from the modern art revolution of late 19th-century France through to the art of our own time.

The National Alliance for Museums, Health & Wellbeing is coordinating the second National Museums & Wellbeing Week from 6-12 March 2017. This is an opportunity for museums to showcase their health & wellbeing offer and raise awareness of this valuable area of work.
