Visit Dorich House Museum

We are very happy to announce that Kingston University’s Dorich House Museum and our partner venue Stanley Picker Gallery will reopen to the public from 2 October 2020 after an extended period of closure due to Covid-19.

To keep our staff, students and visitors safe we will be operating a little differently over the coming months, limiting our general public open days and dedicating other days of the week to activities with students and local communities. We will soon be announcing details about our programmes, how to book your visit and what safety measures will be in place.
