Enjoy the UK's ‘Hidden Treasures’ up close and personal
Now extended until Sunday 15 September!
Enjoy a rare opportunity to see one of Peterborough Museum’s ‘hidden treasures’ up close!
From 19-15 September, Peterborough Museum will be shining a spotlight on a single Hidden Treasure, by exhibiting an original watercolour landscape painting by J.M.W. Turner. Renowned as one of the great masters of British landscape painting, the view of Peterborough Cathedral from the North was painted c.1795 when he was a young artist.
One of two watercolours Turner painted of Peterborough around this time, it is one of the Museum’s most evocative pieces. For conservation reasons, the painting cannot be displayed regularly, or for any length of time, so this is a unique opportunity to discover its amazing story!
FREE, except on special event days when Museum admission charges apply.
This painting will be exhibited as part of The Independent campaign ‘Hidden Treasures’. Run by museum charity the Collections Trust, with media partner The Independent, Hidden Treasures offers Independent readers priority booking for these behind-the-scenes tours of leading heritage institutions – and the ability to secure their place before the general public.
Medieval logboats, elephants skulls and rare chinese ceramics are just some of the artefacts that will be accessible to the public during Hidden Treasures. Cabinets of curiosities previously unseen, secret storerooms usually closed to the public, and expert guides ready to give you a great personal tour are all part of this unique national event.
