Medieval & Renaissance Galleries

The Medieval & Renaissance Galleries are home to one of the world's most remarkable collections of treasures from the period. Ranging from delicately carved ivories and intricate metalwork to Leonardo da Vinci's notebooks and powerful sculptures, they tell the story of European art and culture from 300–1600. These galleries have been made possible thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund and the generosity of many other donors.
