Enclosed under a spectacular glass and steel roof, the Great Court contains a number of sculptures from the Museum’s collection. With a wealth of fascinating galleries to explore, guests can travel back through 3,000 years of Egyptian history and come face-to-face with the Rosetta Stone and the Statue of Ramesses II in the Egyptian Gallery.

The Museum’s unique Grade I listed public galleries are complemented with a suite of contemporary conference facilities, designed by Lord Foster, for daytime and evening events. A sleek balance of functionality and style, the BP Lecture Theatre has very comfortable fixed tiered seating for 323 people, plus a raised stage with lectern and impressive Sony 4K Digital Projector and cinema-style screen.
