Chatsworth is home to one of the most important private collections in Britain. From Elizabethan needlework and Enlightenment scientific instruments to Old Master drawings and 21st century art and sculpture, the Devonshire Collection is a record of one family's eclectic tastes and interests over four hundred years.

Cared for by the Chatsworth House Trust and the Trustees of the Chatsworth Settlement, the collection continues to grow, reflecting the tradition of collecting by the Cavendish family.
