One of London's best loved small museums, the Wallace Collection opens its new 1.2 million exhibition space with a display celebrating 200 years since the birth of the museum's founder, Sir Richard Wallace. Objects, artefacts and works of art from the collection include a beautiful ostrich made of silver holding a horseshoe in its beak and two 18th century Chinese wine cups - of which there are only four in the world - made with pearls and blue from kingfishers' feathers. Here too is the divine Bell of St Mura, made in County Donegal, a gold trophy head from the Asante Kingdom (now Ghana) and spectacular examples of arms and armour, jewellery and unexpected treasures of the museum.

About Wallace Collection

Free art classes and workshops, talks and tours, bring alive to visitors the varied works of art contained in the 25 galleries of the Wallace Collection, on display in Hertford House - an historic London town house and the original family home of The Marquesses of Hertford and Sir Richard Wallace.
