The Ruskin

Home to the leading collection of the works of John Ruskin (1819-1900), the epoch-defining writer, artist and social thinker

At The Ruskin, we explore how Ruskin's ideas can unlock the pressing cultural, social and environmental issues of today and tomorrow.

Our current exhibition Ruskin: Museum of the Near Future is open from 10am until 4pm weekdays until 25 November. Entry to the exhibition and most events is free of charge.
