I visited UCL Art Museum by chance on a visit to UCL to see the Olympic Sculptures. After seeing the Exhibition currently on display 'One day In the City' I felt inclined to leave this little hidden gem a glowing review! I found it amazing that you can get up close and personal with the Art work on display. The... More

As a member of the general public, I visited in the afternoon and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The welcome was warm, friendly and the willingness of staff to share information about the collection was most refreshing. Any pain incurred in navigating to the Museum was rapidly erased. It's also good to see the Museum embracing digitisation with participation in... More

The UCL Art Museum is full of unexpected treasures and surprises. The intimacy of the space allows for close interaction with the artwork and personal refelction. It is cozy, comfortable, yet holds an invaluable collection of inspiring pieces. The staff is extremely friendly and happy to discuss the artworks, or anyhting else, with visitors. If you are a student or... More

Just a short walk from the behemoth of the British Museum, this is a peaceful little oasis full of delightful surprises. The current exhibition, ‘One Day in the City’, is a fascinating mix of the old and the new. There are London scenes and characters from the past: terrific caricatures of 18th century London types by de Loutherbourg, prints from... More

If you work or study in the Bloomsbury/Holborn area, do yourself a favour - leave your desk during your lunch break and head to UCL Art Museum. It's conveniently located right in the heart of UCL's campus - just pass through the main gates and cut through the Quadrangle to the South Cloisters. Don't be put off by the university... More

On at the moment is an exhibition on Rousseau which has some rare editions of his works as well as a collection of French prints and drawings. Don't be put off by the small space! The works here are really fantastic, some really rare things. Also, be sure to look out for the really interesting drawing of a view of... More

I had the pleasure of seeing both the previous exhibition "Word & Image" and the current exhibition "Rousseau 300". The exhibition space is small but focused, and the quiet space provides a welcome change as it allows you a unique close-up experience with the artworks, and even use magnifying glasses! The UCL Art Collection has an impressive range of works,... More
