An exhibition showcasing plans and artwork for the new ‘Museum of the Mind’ at the Bethlem Royal Hospital will be on display in the Bethlem Gallery from 23 January to 8 February 2013. The exhibition will provide an opportunity for public consultation on this exciting new community and education project, devoted to the history of mental health care.
The Bethlem Archives & Museum has supported research and exhibited treasures from its collections for over 40 years from the same small building tucked away on the Bethlem site. The stunning new ‘Museum of the Mind’ is due to open in 2014.
Central to the new museum will be a permanent exhibition which will draw on the internationally recognised collections of archives, art and historic objects. The Bethlem Art and History Collections Trust have commissioned Real Studios (who recently completed the Voyagers gallery at the National Maritime Museum) to develop designs for the exhibition, which will be made publicly available in this exhibition.
