What people say

"This free museum features portraits from the 1500s to modern day. It has special exhibits that cost extra but are currently on a "pay what you can" program. The basement former coal storage has been turned into a trendy cafe called "Larry's" that I recommend. The cocktails at Larry's are all themed after different portraits in the gallery. "
"This FREE museum in Trafalgar Square holds some of the finest art in the world. "
"Found on Google, under renovation till June 2023"
