Victoria Memorial Hall being modernised

Nearly 100 years after its completion, the Victoria Memorial Hall is being modernised and upgraded and its interior and exhibition space is being redesigned. The display system has been overhauled to expose the red sandstone architecture inside. All box-type partitions, false ceilings and plywood have been done away with to expose the lofty and vaulted ceilings. The ornate ceilings, with light streaming in through lofty windows and the intricate stone details, will now be visible. Also from June 2019, the Victoria Memorial will open to the public as a disabled-friendly venue. The Memorial will have 2,000 additional artefacts on display and add gallery space as well.
