Founded in 1799, the Royal Institution of Great Britain is an organisation devoted to scientific education and research. Its collections include the original apparatus and papers of remarkable people such as Michael Faraday and Humphrey Davy, who have researched, lectured and lived in the building. There are also important collections of books, scientific instruments, furniture and archives going back to the institution’s earliest days. Led by an expert member of the department, this tour will cover elements of the history and architecture of the building, as well as telling the stories behind some of the exhibition displays.
This event has been organised by the London Events Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
