CORRECTION: ASHMOLEAN MUSEUM'S HEBERDEN COIN ROOM NOT YET OPEN

Regarding last week's note that Ashmolean Museum's coin room was open, Howard Berlin writes:

Ashmolean Museum I'm not sure if your information is correct. As I would be in London in November, I was planning to make a day trip to Oxford on 11/4 to visit the Ashmolean as it was under "redevelopment" when I was there in 2007.

I e-mailed Dr. Heuchert to let him know of my plans and he returned the following:

"Thank you for you e-mail. Your information is not quite correct. The Ashmolean Museum is scheduled for re-opening to the public on 7th November 2009. From that date onwards you should be able to visit, for example, our new Money Gallery on the Lower Ground Floor. The Heberden Coin Room, however, will remain closed for scholarly visitors until some point, yet to be determined, in early 2010."

I will delay my visit to 2010 during another of my visits to London.

My information came from the Ashmolean museum's website itself, which states that "Since the re-opening of the Museum in late 2009 the Coin Room includes a major new Money Gallery, an environmentally controlled and highly secure Coin Store, a well-appointed Coin Study Room for visitors, and a Seminar Room for numismatic teaching." Sorry for the confusion. -Editor
