About

Eton College looks after thousands of historic, artistic and natural objects, and welcomes visitors to its public museums and galleries.

Museums and Galleries

Eton’s museums and galleries are open to the public free of charge on Sunday afternoons between 2:30pm and 5pm. The Museum of Eton Life is also now open on Saturdays 2:30-5pm.

Why not start your visit in the Museum of Eton Life, where you can step back in time and learn about the history of life at Eton College since it was founded in the 15th century.

Next, make your way across School Yard to see the latest temporary exhibition in the Verey Gallery, which showcases objects and art from Eton College's collections as well as loans from elsewhere.

Then, take a short walk to the Natural History Museum where you can explore and understand more about the natural world. Round off your visit with trip to the Museum of Antiquities, see objects from the ancient world and discover more about life in Ancient Egypt.

All are welcome at the regular openings of Eton’s museums and galleries on Sunday afternoons. There are fun learning activities for families in each of the museums so you may wish to visit more than once to make the most of your time in each space. Why not combine a Sunday afternoon exploring Eton’s museums and galleries with a morning trip to enjoy the many things to do in Windsor. Staff are on hand at the Museum of Antiquities, the Museum of Eton Life, the Natural History Museum and galleries to welcome you and answer any questions.

Please see What’s On for more information and dates of special exhibitions. The museums and galleries may occasionally close due to exceptional circumstances, please check our website and social media for updated information.
