This event has now passed, find out what else is going on at Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery



Join us for the exclusive reopening of Old Tullie House, which has been reinvigorated with a new interpretation of the Pre-Raphaelites gallery, now highlighting the Women in the Picture.

The Pre-Raphaelites were a group of artists in the Victorian era who believed art should reflect the real world. Their work sought a return to the abundant detail, intense colours and complex compositions of Italian art from the 15th century.

This also marks the reopening of the oldest part of the museum after its closure due to the coronavirus pandemic.

There is an opportunity to attend a welcome back talk from the Director, spaces are limited so please book.

Due to the current situation we are unable to serve refreshments during this event. However, you can bring in takeaway cups from the café if you would like.

You can also book a time slot to be the first to explore the newly opening Old Tullie House.

Family guests are welcome, please book a ticket for any guests you are bringing along as numbers are limited.

We reserve the right to ask people to wait to enter specific gallery spaces when they reach capacity. Please remember to wear a face covering inside the museum and keep let on the stairs. Toilets are available in the atrium.
