Exhibitions

In 2011 Chatsworth opened the New Gallery, a purpose made space for temporary exhibitions. In 2012 a new space in the house was dedicated to display some of the many Old Master Drawings in the Collection on a rotating basis. Our programme of art exhibitions for 2014 is well advanced and includes exhibitions of contemporary sculpture in the gardens.

All exhibitions, unless noted, are included with house and/or garden entry depending on where the exhibition is located.
