Gallery Closures

A major new gallery showcasing the Staffordshire Hoard will open at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery in Autumn 2014. To protect objects on display in the adjacent galleries from dust and vibration caused by building work taking place during this refurbishment, the following galleries will be closed:

15th and 16th Century Art (Gallery 26)
Closed 6 January - 4 July 
‘The Descent of the Holy Ghost’ by Botticelli will be re-displayed in 17th Century Italian Art (Gallery 25), due to its fragility ‘The Rest on the Flight into Egypt’ by Gentileschi will be taken off display.

14th to 16th Century Art (Gallery 27)
Closed 6 January - 4 July 

Ancient Egypt (Gallery 34)
Closed 13 January - 23 May
The Egypt gallery is still open for lift access to the Learning Zone.
