The Plymouth Athenaeum is a society dedicated to the promotion of learning in the fields of science, technology, literature and art.
The Athenaeum building, located at Derry's Cross in Plymouth City Centre, includes a 340-seat auditorium and a local interest library.
Founded on 17 October 1812 as the Plymouth Institute, it was soon renamed the Plymouth Institution.
Architect and founding member of the Institution John Foulston (1772 30 December 1841), designed the building that would become the permanent home of the organisation The foundation stone of 'The Athenaeum', which had a Greek Doric-style facade, was laid on 1 May 1818.
The Institution was renamed The Plymouth Athenaeum when it moved into its present building on 1 June 1961, which is located on almost the exact location of its pre-Blitz home.
