The noise and overstimulation of the modern world gets too much for many of us.

Room to Breathe is a dedicated space to help you experience art in a more mindful way.

You can see a variety of works from our collection and listen to original audio guides to help you to explore the art using mindful techniques.

Furniture, colour scheme, number and height of art works, text and audio meditations have all been carefully chosen in a way that we hope will encourage deeper engagement with art and reduce stress.

This a room for you. To rest. To recover. A room to breathe…
