THE NEW LEIGHTON HOUSE MUSEUM: FROM HIDDEN GEM TO NATIONAL TREASURE
Leighton House Museum, the spectacular former studio-house of eminent Victorian artist Frederic, Lord Leighton, is about to embark on the final phase of a monumental restoration project which commenced almost ten years ago, with phases 1 and 2 that aimed to reinstate the house interiors as Leighton knew them. The phase 3, the final one and the most ambitious, will culminate in 2021 to safeguard the long term future of the historic fabric, create much-needed new facilities and enhance the overall visitor experience.
Senior Curator, Daniel Robbins, will present details of the restoration from the outset and share a sneak peek of how the new Leighton House Museum will be presented to the public when it reopens in all its splendor.
