This exhibition has brought together Bronze artefacts from all over the world and is really worth seeing. I visited this week and enjoyed it immensely, it is one of the most interesting and important events I have seen in recent times and well worth a visit.

Seriously recommended. The best exhibition I have seen for quite sometime. So good that I'll be going for a second helping.

This is one of my favourite museums in London and there are always interesting exhibitions. I've been going to the Royal Academy for 15 years and I've never been disappointed.
We went over the weekend to see the 'From Paris - A Taste for Impressionism : Paintings from the Clark' temporary exhibition. Unusually for us, we left our visit a bit late, since the exhibition only had one more week to run, so understably it was fairly packed. Not in an uncomfortable way, as there was plenty of room to move around and to linger in front of certain works without disturbing or being disturbed by other people. The paintings were well laid out, with enough spacing and with the right lighting. The collection was fabulous! Lots of Renoir (including some very famous ones), Monet, Manet, Gauguin, Pissarro, Toulouse-Lautrec, Degas, Morisot, Rousseau... Even more incredible if one considers that it was originally a private collection. It's a relatively small exhibition, 70 paintings, but it's worth taking your time to admire everything. We took about 2 hours, which I think is about right.
The exhibition was £9, which is quite reasonable, considering that the big temporary exhibitions here and in other museums tend to be between £15 and £20.
It can get a bit warm in the gallery, so bear that in mind. The cloakroom is free, so do take advantage of it.
I must try the restaurant next time.

We prebooked tickets for the first session on the opening day of the Bronze Exhibition at the Royal Academy, £15 each. We picked them up when teh building opened on the dot at ten and went straight in.

It was magnificent! Tremendous, impressive pieces, for the start of the bronze age to 2012, from 50 grams to many tons. Very thought-provoking, startling, playful, emotive, wonderful.

It was busy but by no means too crowded, we could move all round and look up close where we wanted. The audio guide was pretty good. A nice environment to walk round in.

We were really pleased we went.

There is always something interesting to see here and the galleries are beautiful. Our latest trip was to see the Sterling and Francine Clark collection of impressionist art in the Sackler Gallery. A great collection well presented - I loved seeing the original invoices showing how much Monsieur Clark paid for the pictures in 20s and 30s Paris. As a venue for the visitor, the RA has a good shop and a decent restaurant in the basement (now much improved) making the whole experience very enjoyable. Well worth a visit if you like art and are visiting London
