The UK’s leading tourist attraction unveils a typically eclectic and fascinating programme for 2014

(TRAVPR.COM) UK - December 11th, 2013 - The world’s greatest museum, the British Museum in Bloomsbury, has confirmed its programme of exhibitions for 2014 will include a new look at Germany, a redevelopment of the Sutton Hoo gallery and a blockbuster exploration of Ming China. The British Museum is the UK’s foremost tourist attraction and is located in central London close to dozens of London’s hotels. For the latest room rates at London hotels visit LondonTown.com, which always carries the latest and best information on London hotel prices and availability.

The big exhibition planned for the autumn of 2014 is Ming: 50 Years That Changed China (18th September 2014 – 5th January 2015) at the Sainsbury Exhibitions Gallery. This will show how the 50 years of the Ming dynasty played a major role in creating the China we recognise today, turning it into a global superpower. This major exhibition will include spectacular objects from all over the world, as well as recent discoveries from the excavations of royal tombs in China.

From the other side of the globe comes Germany (16 October 2014 - 25 January 2015), which will attempt to show Germany in a different light in a year when many museums and galleries will be commemorating the 100th anniversary of the First World War. This exhibition will explore the landscape, history, and culture of Germany from the height of the Holy Roman Empire and the age of Gutenberg through to post Cold-War contemporary Germany. It will feature the work of great German artists, as well as a wide range of objects that includes prints and maps, coin and medals, spectacular metalwork from clocks to armour, Meissen porcelain and Bauhaus furniture.

Closer to home, the Sutton Hoo and Europe AD 300–1100 gallery will reopen on 27th March 2014 after a major redisplay of these extraordinary objects taken from an Anglo-Saxon royal burial ground. The design, object selection and interpretation has been refreshed with the aim of developing a more coherent narrative for the collections, which tell the story of a formative period in Europe’s history. Finally, Witches And Wicked Bodies (September 2014 – January 2015) in Room 90 will be co-curated by artist Deanna Petherbridge and will examine the way the witch – both hideous hag and bewitching seductress - has been portrayed in art from the Renaissance to the 19th century.  For more on this and other London events in the Bloomsbury area in 2014, visit LondonTown.com.
