  1. I listened to a glowing reporrt on the Cranach exhbition on Front Row which said we can see many of the pictures on line. I cant see how to do that on your website. Is it possible and if so how?

    1. Hi Colin,

      Thank you for your message. We have a number of digital resources and are working to put together a virtual tour of the exhibition. We aim to make this live on the ‘Cranach: Artist & Innovator’ page in the next few days. In the meantime, the Cranach Digital Archive has a vast amount of content that may be on interest to you. You can find it here

      We thank you for your patience and continued support at this difficult time and look forward to welcoming you again when it is safe to do so.

    1. Hi May,
      Thank you for your message. Forest School will run tomorrow as normal. Due to the increasing concerns around COVID 19 we have taken the decision to close the house and suspend all programmed activities from 5pm on Fri 20 Mar until 11am on Fri 1 May. Any updates on this will be communicated through our social media channels and via our website. If you have anymore enquiries, please email and our team will be happy to help.
