Acquisitions & Disposal

As a registered museum, the Wallace Collection has an acquisitions and disposals policy, which has been formally adopted by the Trustees of the Wallace Collection.

This document sets out the parameters within which we operate as a closed collection governed by statute, which prohibits us not only from acquiring new works for the main collection, but also from disposing of any works of art in it.

The Policy also sets out our collecting policy for the Hertford House Historic Collection and the standards to which we operate when considering and making acquisitions for this collection.
