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
