Situated within Horse Guards, the official entrance to the Royal Palace, the Museum is one of the city’s most historic and iconic Grade 1 listed buildings.
Opened by Her Majesty The Queen in a ceremonial pageant in 2007 the museum is in an enviable location at the heart of Whitehall with an approach via Horse Guard’s Parade Ground opposite St. James’s Park. Dating from the 1750s, it is the headquarters and working stables of the oldest regiment, the Household Cavalry, who perform The Queen’s Life Guard in a daily ceremony that has remained broadly unchanged for over 350 years.
With a total available floor space of 400 sqm each of the three galleries house historic displays including items from the Battle of Waterloo, a Fabergé box and modern additions including Sefton’s bridle.
The first Gallery is The Reception which includes the beautiful original 1750’s cobbled floor. The second Gallery is The tables divided by a glass partition allowing guests to see the Cavalry horses and men in their working barracks. The third and main display Gallery has magnificent William Kent vaulted ceilings and outstanding collections of history.
