It is 300 years since the death of Sir Christopher Wren (1632-1723), the revolutionary scientist, mathematician and architect who was responsible for building the St Paul’s Cathedral we know and love today.

To commemorate his remarkable life, our exhibition Sir Christopher Wren: The Quest for Knowledge will explore and reflect on the early life and career of Wren. The exhibition will chart his lesser-known achievements in mathematics, astronomy and physiology, as well as the design and building of his greatest monument, St Paul’s Cathedral.

With a wealth of material from our archives, discover these rich stories alongside drawings, photographs and treasures from our collection including remarkable historical objects personal to Wren himself.
