Cast Courts

Cast Courts

First opened in 1873, the Cast Courts were purpose built to house one of the most comprehensive collections of casts of post-classical European sculpture. 24 metres in height, the two galleries house some of the V&A’s largest objects and are among the most popular in the Museum. Renovation has recently taken place on The Weston Cast Court (Gallery 46b), which re-opened to the public in November 2014. The Court has been named in recognition of The Garfield Weston Foundation’s longstanding and generous support of the V&A. With further support from The Henry Moore Foundation, Patricia Wengraf Ltd., The Salomon Oppenheimer Philanthropic Foundation, and Sam Fogg.

A gift in your will

You may not have thought of including a gift to a museum in your will, but the V&A is a charity and legacies form an important source of funding for our work. It is not just the great collectors and the wealthy who leave legacies to the V&A. Legacies of all sizes, large and small, make a real difference to what we can do and your support can help ensure that future generations enjoy the V&A as much as you have.
