The Queen's Gallery, Buckingham PalaceOnce Buckingham Palace's resident chapel, the Queen's Gallery was opened in 1962 and holds regularly changing exhibitions. It allows the general public glimpses of rarely seen works of art from the Royal Collection, one of the finest art collections in the world. Exhibitions often draw on works from the royal residences across the UK including world-famous paintings by the likes of Rembrandt and Canaletto, spectacular porcelain, jewels, works by Faberge, as well as furniture, sculpture, arms and armour, plus historic pieces still used for ceremonial occasions today.
