Free Admission including temporary exhibitions. Open daily from 10am - 5pm. The Wallace Collection is open all Public Holidays 10 - 5pm, except 24 - 26 December. Why not beat the crowds and visit us on New Year's Eve or New Year's Day?


The Great Gallery will be re-opening on 19 September after its refurbishment! Due to the need to re-hang the Gallery we have unfortunately needed to remove objects from display until the re-opening.

If you have any questions about the location of a specific object then please contact the Curatorial Department at or +44 (0)207 563 9515 (Monday - Friday). 

Message from the Director

Dear visitors,

Like most art institutions across the country, the Wallace Collection is affected by substantial budget cuts. As a consequence, we are no longer able to guarantee that all our galleries are open at all times. Gallery closures will remain an exception, and we are trying to keep them to a minimum. If you have a specific interest in an art work displayed in a gallery that is momentarily closed, you are invited to contact our Front Desk. We will always try to provide access.

Thank you for your understanding.

Christoph Vogtherr

Lift Information
