Royal College of Music Museum
The more you see, the more we do.
The National Art Pass lets you enjoy free entry to hundreds of museums, galleries and historic places across the UK, while raising money to support them.
The Royal College of Music Museum has reopened in October 2021 after a complete redevelopment of its building and displays, supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
The Museum Designated collections are formed by over 15,000 items spanning over five centuries, including instruments, paintings, sculptures, drawings and engravings. Among them are the world’s earliest surviving guitar (Lisbon, 1581), the oldest stringed keyboard instrument (Ulm, c.1450), and the best known portraits of Joseph Haydn and Farinelli.
