Building Information
Grade I. The essentially early 18th.C. house was remodelled and enlarged by Robert Adam in the 1760s, and later alterations took place c. 1824 and c.1862. The park and upper lake, along with the chapel, are the work of "Capability" Brown in the years after 1769.
Collections Overview
The collection focuses on artists not readily accessible within the UK, and also contains the British Folk Art Collection. The collecting policy covers European art and artefacts from about 1450 to the present day, together with Chinese Ritual Bronzes, Islamic/Mughal Artefacts, and British Folk Art.
Display Overview
The displays aim to make art fun and interesting for as wide an audience as possible, and therefore include interactive exhibits, temporary exhibitions, sculpture trails, nature trails etc.
