Following a £3.6million investment from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the Royal College of Music Museum has undergone a complete redevelopment.
Musical Portraits in Bohemian London (1870-1930) includes artworks and manuscripts from members of the lively social circle of famous artists and musicians who once lived in Kensington, such as Edward Burne-Jones, John Singer Sargent, Jan Paderewski and George Henschel. Explore as part of your visit until 9 January 2022.
We are currently allocating entry slots to visit our Museum. These are available Tuesday – Sunday, with a morning or afternoon option. You can arrive at any time during your chosen slot. Please note, weekend timings are different from weekdays.
To view available entry slots, please click ‘book’.
The Museum will be closed on 2 December.
Some free tickets are also available on the door without reservation, however we recommend booking your entry slot in advance, to avoid waiting in case we are at full capacity.
Museum entry slots are accessible to visitors with limited mobility. You can read more about our access measures in the RCM Museum here.
Big Give Christmas Challenge
This December we welcome gifts via the Big Give Christmas Challenge to our Scholarships Fund. This unique opportunity allows every online donation we receive via the campaign page, from 12pm on 30 November - 12pm on 7 December, to be doubled up to a total of £60,000.
The Scholarships Fund offers vital support to our talented musicians to access world-class education regardless of their background. Your contribution can make their dream of performing on the world stage a reality.
Thank you for helping us secure the future of music!
