Visitors to The McManus: Dundee’s Art Gallery & Museum have a final chance this month to see the successful ‘Reflections on Celts’ exhibition. The show runs until Sunday March 26, 2017 and is last leg of a national spotlight tour which has visited other museums across the UK including the National Civil War Museum in Newark and the Old Gala House in Galashiels.
‘Reflections on Celts’ is organised in partnership with National Museums Scotland and the British Museum. It features two Iron Age mirrors – the British Museum’s Holcombe mirror and National Museums Scotland’s Balmaclellan mirror – which tell very different stories, and help us to understand the relationships between communities in Britain 2,000 years ago.
Christina Donald, Curator of Early History at the McManus said
“The partnership with National Museums Scotland and the British Museum has been very successful and I would encourage everyone to get along and see these Iron Age mirrors while they still have the chance.”
Jilly Burns, Head of Partnerships at National Museums Scotland said
“Increasing access to and engagement with the national collections all across the country is a key aim for National Museums Scotland. Reflections on Celts has been a highly successful example of this, working with the British Museum and partners including the McManus who have added richly to the display with additional objects and interpretation.”
The exhibition is free and runs until March 26, 2017. It is generously supported by the Dorset Foundation.
