It is five hundred years after Sir Thomas More coined the term ‘utopia’, and almost one hundred and fifty years since the first use of the twin word ‘dystopia’. Now the Bethlem Museum of the Mind curators hold up a mirror to today’s society by putting a first edition of More’s ‘Utopia’ on display, alongside rarely-seen works from the Museum’s reserve collection which communicate a vision of the best – and worst – of all possible worlds.

Wednesdays – Fridays 10am to 5pm

First and last Saturdays of each month 10am to 5pm

Free entry (suggested donation £2).
