British Museum grows

My old stomping ground, the British Museum, are set to open a brand new wing in 2012. It’s going to house their new state-of-the-art research and collections management centre, plus a new puspose-built exhibition suite. That means they’ll be able to move out of the Reading Room and return it back to a library, which will please many. The BM has proven in recent years that it is just as capable of putting on blockbusters as the National Gallery and Tate, and that they need a space large and well-serviced enough to do just that. First Emperor and Hadrian were such huge successes and it’ll be great to see them build on that.

As ever, I’ve written a piece about it for Museum Insider. Take a look if you’d like to know more.
