What to expect

Visit the Queen's Gallery to enjoy a beautiful selection of art from the Royal Collection.

Explore the Gallery which has a program of exhibitions with pieces from the Royal Collection including paintings by old masters, historic furniture, rare decorative arts, and photographs. Visit the 'Masterpieces from Buckingham Palace' exhibition and admire paintings by van Dyck, Rubens, Rembrandt, Claude, and other masters.

From 8 April 2022 to 26 February 2023 you can see the exhibition 'Japan: Courts and Culture'. Discover the highlights of Japanese art from the Royal Collection that are brought together to explain the story of 30 years of diplomatic and cultural exchange between Japan and British imperial and royal families. Admire pieces of porcelain, samurai armory, and other significant pieces.

Discover the Queen's Gallery, which stands on the late chapel for Queen Victoria, which was destroyed in 1940. Queen Elizabeth II and Duke of Edinburgh suggested the idea of an art gallery for the Royal Collection and Queen Elizabeth II opened the Queen's Gallery in 2002. The project became a success and the gallery expanded and became the most significant addition to Buckingham Palace in 150 years.
