New Exhibition Coming Soon!
We have exciting plans to renovate our exhibition space and unveil "Famous Beyond Words – Shakespeare all around us" in March 2014.
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.
Life, Love and Legacy will close for refurbishment on 19 Dec 2013.
