The Study opens on 11 September 2015. A reworking of the entire top floor of our historic Grade II*-listed building, The Study has been reimagined as a space designed to spark wonder, curiosity and a passion for research in all of its visitors.

The Study sits inside the museum’s original 1885 building, the historic space opened up and original features painstakingly restored.

But the project is not just about restoration. It features bespoke furniture designed by Ben Kelly Design (BKD) and state of the art equipment, such as a video microscope capable of sharing still images direct to Twitter.
