Testimonials from a few of our exhibition hosts.

Mitch Robertson, Programming and Collections Manager, The Beaney, Canterbury

The team are a delight to work with, combining professionalism with warmth and good humour. I hope that we can work with them again very soon!”

Kirsty Rodda, Visual Arts Exhibitions Manager, Winchester Discovery Centre

“We are always really thrilled with the touring exhibitions from House of Illustration, and our visitors feel the same. Their exhibitions are so well-conceived and well-rounded. There’s an impressive depth of variety in their content, with superb and visually stunning displays, and genuinely engaging interpretation. The team at House of Illustration are a pleasure to work with and the exhibition delivery is seamless. We are really looking forward to hiring from them again.”

Beth McIntyre, Senior Curator, National Museum Wales

“National Museum Wales was thrilled to be able to show the exhibition Quentin Blake: Inside Stories in 2016… The exhibition proved to be extremely popular with visitors and school groups and it was one of the most successful we have held, with double the number of visitors we would normally expect. It was a pleasure to work with the House of Illustration team to develop the exhibition to suit our space and our visitors.”

Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery, Carlilse

“Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery in Carlisle was privileged to be the first venue on the tour of House of Illustration's beautiful The BFG in Pictures exhibition. The exhibition attracted almost 6,000 visitors, who were thrilled by the chance to see the artworks in Carlisle and inspired to take part in a range of fun hands-on family events. The exhibition also provided a brilliant opportunity for our education team to create a fantastic literacy and storytelling session for local primary school children. One of the school children who took part in the sessions described it as the ‘best day ever.’”

Cornelis van der Bas, Curator, Huis Doorn, Netherlands

“During E. H. Shepard: An Illustrator’s War,  Museum Huis Doorn was visited by more than 11,000 people: a huge success. It was a great pleasure working with The House of Illustration, we received all the support we needed, and House of Illustration also played a vital role in bringing Museum Huis Doorn into contact with other UK cultural organisations, including museums, archives and galleries. We hope to do more projects with House of Illustration in the near future.”
