View: Treasures from the V&A, 400 to 1600AD
| Millennium Galleries
Treasures from the Victoria & Albert Museum is an exhibition of glittering treasure, spanning more than 1200 years of European art and craftsmanship. Throughout this period, artists created awe-inspiring symbols of human wealth, power and religion.
To complement Treasures from the V&A, Museums Sheffield has delved deep into Sheffieldâ€™s own medieval and Tudor history. See rare documents from Beauchief Abbey and Bishopsâ€™ House, letters from Mary Queen of Scots written during her imprisonment in Sheffield and a visual reconstruction of Sheffield Castle as it looked before it was destroyed in the Civil War.
Visitors will enjoy a glass of wine on arrival followed by an introduction by museum curator, Clare Starkie, and a tour of the exhibition.
