The Life of Christ audio tour

About the tour

Join former National Gallery Director Neil McGregor to look at moments in the life of Christ, as they've been depicted in paintings.

How have different artists represented and responded to events in Christ's life? How did they achieve their aim of making Christ and his birth, life and death central to the life of the spectator?

Who is the tour for?

It is aimed at adults, though families with children can enjoy discovering the paintings together.

Listen to an introduction to the Life of Christ audio tour with curator Dawson Carr.
