  • Part of Scala’s Art Spaces series
  • Tells the entire story of the museum, from 1870 to the present


An ideal souvenir for visitors to this museum, this attractive pocket-sized book is also the perfect ‘taster’ for those not familiar with its splendid collections and magnificent architecture. Tracing the history of the museum from its original foundation in 1870, the book takes the story right up to the present day and includes a discussion of the major expansion designed by acclaimed British architects, Foster and Partners. As well as describing the history of the museum itself, the lively and informative text introduces the reader to some of the resourceful men and women who have shaped the museum’s history.
