When you enter in the Wallace Collection you feel the crack in the time, like being back in the past when discovering the interior of this 18th century villa.
The museum displays wonderful works of art collected in the 18th and 19th centuries by the first four Marquesses of Hertford and Sir Richard Wallace, the son of the 4th Marquess.
The collection is worldly renowned for its paintings by artists such as Titian, Rembrandt, Hals and Velázquez and for its superb collections of 18th century French paintings, porcelain, furniture and gold boxes, probably the best to be found anywhere outside France.
Adding to those jewels, splendid medieval and Renaissance objects, including Limoges enamels, maiolica, glass and bronzes, as well as the finest array of princely arms and armour in Britain, featuring both European and Oriental objects.
