The National Gallery

London, England
4.7 / 11
The largest museum in the country, where more than 2000 samples of Western European painting are exhibited, starting from the XII century. The gallery was created in 1839, since then the collection has been constantly updated. Like many similar places, it is impossible to get around the museum in one visit, you will need to return to it several times to look at all the expositions. You can also listen to audio books and lectures on art at the London Gallery.
