Dynastic Egypt & Nubia Gallery – 9 Aug 2011
The Ashmolean Museum, established in 1683, is the oldest public museum in Britain. In 1999 Rick Mather Architects were appointed to develop a long-term masterplan and expansion scheme to provide more space and 21st century facilities for its world renowned collections. The masterplan envisaged the removal of the poor quality existing Victorian buildings behind the Cockerell building, originally built to house a rapidly growing collection, and later piecemeal additions which combined to give a very confusing route for the museum visitor.
