To mark the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta we are holding a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition
Since 1215, Magna Carta has evolved from a political peace treaty to an international symbol of individual freedoms. From its genesis through to today’s popular culture, uncover the story of how its power has been used – and abused – in the largest exhibition ever staged about Magna Carta.
Discover the history, and challenge the myth, of one of the world’s most famous documents through iconic documents and artefacts, including two of the four original 1215 Magna Carta documents, Jefferson’s copy of the US Declaration of Independence and one of the original copies of the US Bill of Rights, stunning paintings, maps, statues and royal relics.
Exhibition open until 1 September 2015
