We visited this on the recommendation of a friend and were not disappointed. Amazing to see so may different and interesting objects collected by several generations of the same family.

There are many clocks here and most of them are still working and show the correct time.

Do yourself a favor if you love 18th century art and run to this museum. It is a delight. The house itself is more than lovely and the perfect setting for the Fragonard, Watteau and Boucher paintings which hang on its walls. jThe French furniture collection is outstanding and several European painting masterpieces by Titian, Rubens, Velasquez are breathtaking. Afternoon tea in the Wallace Restaurant is an added treat.

This collection is one of the best kept secrets in London. It has some special exhibits that in another city would be considered the star attractions. It is wonderful that the collection is still together and so accessible - only 2 mins from Oxford St.

Absolutely fell in love with this grand town house, packed with the private and personal collection of generations of the Wallace family. The tour at 3.30 whet my appetite to know more and so a returned the following day to see the stuff that I had missed. My favourites were the Dutch masters and the one I'd like to bring home was The Lace Maker by Casper Netscher (1639 - 1684)
