New Exhibition Coming Soon
We have exciting plans to renovate our exhibition space and unveil a brand new permanent exhibition, "Famous Beyond Words" in March 2014.
'William Shakespeare in the Globe Theatre' Phillip Sutton, R.A, Oil on Canvas
For four centuries Shakespeare’s work has fascinated people of all ages and backgrounds. The new introductory exhibition at Shakespeare’s Birthplace will explore the extraordinary story of William Shakespeare, the boy from Stratford-upon-Avon who became a household name all over the world. Discover what sparked his imagination and how he continues to shape our lives today.
This new exhibition has been funded by the DCMS/Wolfson Museum and Galleries Improvement Fund and will showcase a range of items from our collections including Shakespeare's First Folio.
While the new exhibition is being installed, visitors can still enjoy a selection of our fascinating collections items in the Treasures Exhibition.
