The Museum of Classical Archaeology is one of the few surviving collections of plaster casts of Greek and Roman sculpture in the world.

The collection of about 450 casts is open to the public and housed in a purpose-built Cast Gallery on the first floor of the Classics Faculty. Nearly all the well-known (and not so well-known) works from the Classical world can be seen together under one roof.
