The museum houses and displays one of the largest, and perhaps the finest collection of plaster casts of Greek and Roman sculpture in the world.

The collection of the Museum of Classical Archaeology ranges from the largest of sculptures to the smallest of artefacts. Our cast collection is one of very few surviving plaster cast collections in the world today – and we have more than 450 of our casts on display in the Cast Gallery, including our famous painted Peplos Kore. Our research collections of sherds and epigraphic squeezes are excellent resources for both study and teaching.

Our Museum collections span the length and breadth of the Graeco-Roman world and cover a time period reaching from 1700 BCE to 400 CE. Our Cast Gallery features not only some of the most recognisable pieces of ancient Greek art, but includes Roman statues dating to the Christian era. We are committed to making as much of our collection accessible to the public as possible, but where we cannot put all those objects on display our online research catalogues make over 15,000 artefacts available to both visitors and scholars.
