Journey through China’s extraordinary culture in this special guided tour, before the galleries open to the public.

In the Sir Joseph Hotung Gallery of China and South Asia (Room 33), you will gain an insight into the development of Chinese civilisation, from 5000 BC to the present day. This beautifully refurbished space was re-opened by Her Majesty The Queen in 2017. From exquisite Ming dynasty blue and white porcelain to delicate painted handscrolls and magnificent Tang dynasty tomb figures, this introductory tour will give you a deep appreciation for some of the magnificent objects on display.

The tour will begin at 09.00 and will last for 60 minutes. Please come to the Main entrance on Great Russell Street (WC1B 3DG) at 08.50 with your email confirmation.
