A Members-only late night viewing of the exhibition Rodin and the art of ancient Greece.

Discover how ancient Greek sculpture inspired Rodin to set a radical new direction for modern art. In 1881 the French sculptor Auguste Rodin visited London for the first time. On a trip to the British Museum, he saw the Parthenon sculptures and was instantly captivated by the beauty of these ancient Greek masterpieces. Experience the magnificent sculpture of a modern master, and explore how the ancient world shaped his artistic vision.

All Members will need to book in advance of their visit for late night viewings of the exhibition (please note: this does not apply to visiting during normal opening hours). You are welcome to wait in the Museum until your timeslot. The Members’ Room will not be open for the duration of the evening and will close at 17.30. However, you can wait in the Great Court or visit the Great Court Café.
