Model of The Parthenon at the British Museum

The white wooden model of the Parthenon stands on a brown wooden stand in the British Museum Gallery. In the background are some of the tactile plaster panels and at the far end is part of a Doric column that has been created to give visitors an understanding of the structure of the Parthenon.

Creation of a scale model was part of the British Museum's scheme to make the Parthenon Gallery accessible to everyone. The model complements the tactile information panels, plaster casts of carvings of the Parthenon Frieze and part of a Doric Column that can be touched and explored by all.

A small dark-haired girl is being shown the wooden model of the Parthenon by a dark-haired man. He is bending down and peering into the model and pointing out some feature to her. In the background are some interpretative panels of the Gallery and a reception desk.

The wooden scale model of the Parthenon is now installed in the re-ordered Gallery. An evaluation of the existing facilities was made and the Trust wrote a report on the work to be carried out. This has now been completed and a new audio guide installed which includes a description of the model.
