The History of Museums: 1550-2020
Online Course at the V&A
Course Leader: Dr Caroline McCaffrey-Howarth
This course examines the ways in which museums and their collections have evolved: from their elite beginnings, to their role as symbols of cultural education, and to their place today in a postcolonial society.
To make sure we can get everyone logged in and ready to start on time, bookings will close two working days before the course is due to begin.
