Anatomy Theatre & Museum

The Anatomy Theatre & Museum is a facility for teaching, research and performance at King's.

Renovation in 2009 transformed these rooms in the Grade 1 listed King's Building on the Strand into a well-equipped and atmospheric set of flexible linked spaces. The refurbishment was made possible with investment from King’s College Estates and Facilities, the ISS Connected Campus Programme, and the Department of English.

The Anatomy Theatre & Museum houses teaching, research and events that progress our understanding of the part performance plays across disciplines and practices, and the new and innovative means through which the digital environment can enhance scholarship, archiving and research. There is also a varied public events programme, including the National Theatre Live @ King's broadcasts.

The team works with academics, professions, industry, artists and the public. Our aims are to use the ambience, aesthetics and apparatus of the space to:

  • Explore and inspire performance and e-research across disciplines and domains;
  • Develop, capture and deepen trans-disciplinary understandings;
  • Support existing and stimulate new communities of practice;
  • Think, create and innovate;
  • Collaborate and communicate;
  • Conduct world class teaching, learning and research;
  • Engage with the public and bring new audiences to King's.

The Centre for e-Research originally co-curated the space with the Performance Foundation at King's.


The Anatomy Museum is a curated space, now programmed and managed by King’s Cultural Institute. It accommodates a wide range of activity and, subject to availability, may be booked by internal and external users.
