The RA Collection

Discover treasures from the RA Collection at Momart, the fine art transport company, with a guided tour from the RA Head of Collections, Maurice Davies and Collections Manager Dan Bowmar.

Join our RA Head of Collections, Maurice Davies and Collections Manager Dan Bowmar on a rare behind-scenes-tour of the RA Collection at Momart, the fine art transport, storage and installation service company based in East London.

Established in 1972, Momart provides specialist art storage, art transport and installation service for collectors, galleries, museums and artists around the world. Momart received the Royal Warrant in 1993 by Her Majesty The Queen.

This is a rare opportunity to visit the RA’s offsite collection store where paintings, sculpture and other works are stored – when not on display – in climate-controlled conditions. Get an insight into how the RA cares for and manages its works of art while getting a close-up view of the collection.

Please note: the collection store is a working environment with very limited facilities. Food and drink are not allowed and the visit involves long periods of standing.

Taking place throughout Friends Week, we are offering Friends of the RA a unique opportunity to gain insight to the inner workings of the Royal Academy through talks, tours, workshops, stories and anecdotes from the experts.

This event is open to members of the Academicians’ Room, Friends of the RA and RA250 Friends and RA250 Supporters.

Members of the Academicians’ Room, please call 020 7300 8090 to book. Friends of the RA can book by phone or online. The location will be confirmed after purchase.
