For the first time in over a century, one of central London’s lesser known, but rather wonderful museums, the Wallace Collection is to be allowed to lend its collection of grand master paintings to other venues.
About the Wallace CollectionA grand mansion in the heart of London that's now an art gallery and in part, a museum of military armour and weapons.
It exists thanks to a bequest which gifted it to the nation, on condition that none of the objects leave -- so the art gallery houses some incredibly famous paintings which can only ever be seen here.
The military armour display is a bit odd in this setting, but interesting in its own right.
IMPORTANT - Although venues are reopening, their hours may differ from normal, and most now need prebooking before you visit.
