Ure Museum

About

The Ure Museum holds collections of archaeological material, archives and modern artefacts.  

The archaeological collections consist of more than 2.000 objects and are primarily from ancient Greek, Egyptian, Cypriot, and Etruscan civilisations. The Greek antiquities make up the main part of the museum’s collection, these have come from a range of donations, purchases and bequests. Our founders, Percy and Annie Ure, recognised the importance of students having access to actual objects from the cultures they were studying and wanted ‘to give life and variety to the study of Greek History’.
