The Queen's Gallery Featuring The Works of Leonardo Da Vinci

The Queen's Gallery is a public art gallery located at the west front of the Buckingham Palace, home of the British monarch, in London. It exhibits works of art from the Royal Collection (i.e., those works owned by the Queen "in trust for the nation" rather than privately) on a rotating basis; about 450 works are on display at any one time.

The exhibit during my visit featured the works of  Leonardo Da Vinci. It was entitled Anatomist as most of the works of Da Vinci were also about the anatomy of humans.

There was so much to see and everything had a mystery!


Comprising more than 90 sheets of Leonardo’s studies of the human body, this is the largest ever exhibition of the artist’s anatomical work.

The Queen's Gallery has an astonishing and wide-ranging collection of paintings, sculpture and other works of art as well as a glittering array of priceless treasure held in trust for the Nation by Her Majesty The Queen. This is a popular site for London visitors who love art and a Free Entry site for London Pass holders.

The Queen's Gallery at Buckingham Palace was constructed forty years ago out of the bomb-damaged ruins of the former private chapel. The Gallery underwent extensive refurbishment and expansion to celebrate The Queen's Golden Jubilee in 2002 and was reopened by Her Majesty on 21 May that year.

The Queen's Gallery hosts a programme of changing exhbitions from the Royal Collection. Open daily 10:00-17:30 (last admission 16:30).
