- The Theatre Museum is home to the world's largest collection of all things relating to stage and screen, from marionettes to manuscripts. There are both permanent and changing exhibitions, as well as a daily programme of events, including guided tours, costume workshops and make-up demonstrations. The museum was first suggested in 1955 by Laurence Irving, grandson of Sir Henry, and actually opened in 1963 in an annexe of Leighton House. It now serves as an arena for promoting live performing arts with everything from the circus to music halls represented within its walls. Admission is free.
