Dulwich Picture Gallery

Registered Charity Number 1040942

The Gallery, the world’s first purpose-built public art gallery, was established more than 200 years ago because its founders believed as many people as possible should see great paintings. Today we believe the same.

We house a world-class collection of Old Master paintings in Sir John Soane’s unique building allowing visitors to experience exceptional art in an intimate, welcoming setting.

We remain relevant by uniting our history with our present using innovative exhibitions, scholarship and pioneering education to change lives.

We aim to engage people in the visual arts, through scholarship, exhibition, and education, reaching out and serving as wide a public as possible by making all our activities accessible, for people of all ages and abilities. Our Good Times: Art for Older People programme addresses pressing issues facing older people (and their carers) such as dementia and Alzheimer’s; while our youth programme, The Creatives tackles isolation and at-risk groups of younger people. These two groups come together in our intergenerational programme to help address issues of social cohesion.
