Kathleen Lynch, curator, with Betsy Walsh, consultant

 

Celebrate London this summer with an in-depth look at the city's early modern past, a time of fire, plague, and religious schisms, as well as international commerce, explosive population growth, and a bubbling mix of new ideas.

 

Open City: London, 1500-1700 explores how wide-ranging changes in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries translated into Londoners' daily lives and familiar gathering places, from churches and marketplaces to public theaters. Filled with rare maps, books, prints, plays, deeds, diaries, and more, the exhibition explores what life was like in a capital city with some surprising similarities to our own.
