World Conservation and Exhibitions Centre (WCEC) at The British Museum

The WCEC is one of the largest redevelopment projects in the British Museum’s 260-year history. Located in the north-west corner of its Bloomsbury estate, the new nine-storey building consists of five pavilions, one of which is entirely underground, and accommodates 175 staff. It provides the Museum with a new major exhibition gallery, state-of-the-art laboratories and studios, and world class storage for the collection, as well as important facilities to support its extensive UK and international loan programme.
