Corsi Collection of Decorative Stones

How to visit the Corsi collection or contact us

The Corsi collection and the Museum’s other collections of decorative stone samples are not on public display, but we welcome study and research visits by prior appointment.

No appointment is needed to see the stones that form pillars in the Museum Court. They can be viewed during public opening hours, from 10.00 to 17.00 daily.
