Celebrating Ashmole's 400th Birthday

Redisplaying the Founding Collection

This year, we are transforming two key galleries and returning our founding collections to the very heart of the Museum.

Thank you to everyone who supported our summer appeal to raise funds for the final touch, a state-of-the-art display case for Powhatan's Mantle, undoubtedly one of the most important and iconic items in our care.

You can still make a gift today to help us to safeguard and display all the other treasures that make up the Ashmolean's exceptional collections, and bring them to life for generations to come.
