The Wallace Collection

As one of Britain’s preeminent cultural institutions, the Wallace Collection is home to one of the most significant ensembles of fine and decorative arts in the world. From paintings and sculptures to arms, armour and porcelain.

The Wallace Collection is an internationally outstanding collection of fine and decorative arts from around the world.

Built over the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries by the Marquesses of Hertford and Sir Richard Wallace, it is one of the finest and most celebrated collections in the world.

So that it could be kept together and enjoyed by generations of visitors, the collection was given to the British Nation in 1897. It was one of the greatest gifts of artworks ever to be transferred into public ownership.
