Museum from home

Whilst the BDA Museum is currently closed due to the lockdown, we will be sharing some of our favourite objects with you virtually.
​We will be celebrating the BBC Arts' Culture in Quarantine event  #MuseumFromHome on 30 April. 

The event aims to share objects and stories from Museums across the UK on social media, and we will be joining in!

Watch this space for a virtual tour of some of our more quirky and unusual objects, from our collection of over 25,000 items.
