Museum web site

Royal Holloway was founded in 1879 after a huge donation from Thomas Holloway. Created as a women's college, it was located in a newly built and spectacular quadrangle in Egham, Surrey. Called Founders, the building was designed after the Chambord Castle (France), but built with red stone. In 1985, it merged with Bedford college, the first women's college in the UK (founded in 1845).

Today, it counts almost 9000 students (2000 postgraduates).

Thomas Holloway also bequeathed his art collection, now displayed in a gallery in the Founders building.
