About Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts

The Sainsbury Centre is a genre-defying art museum, inviting you to meet and interact with art in ways you’ve never experienced in a museum before. From embracing an artwork to becoming an artwork yourself, the centre’s brand-new interventions break down the barriers of how we conventionally experience a museum and allow us to form deeper and more meaningful connections with art.

With a ‘Pay If and What You Can’ ticketing system, the centre makes for a perfect day out. Immerse yourself in world-class art, explore the Sculpture Park set in 350 acres of campus parkland, enjoy speciality coffee, and shop beautiful products by independent makers.
