The Queen's House will close for refurbishment on July 27 2015, reopening on Tuesday October 11 2016.

The art collection of the Royal Museums Greenwich is displayed in what was formerly the summer villa of Charles I’s queen, Henrietta Maria. Completed in 1638 by Inigo Jones, the house has an interior as impressive as the paintings on the walls. As well as the stunning 1635 marble floor, look for Britain’s first centrally unsupported spiral stair, fine painted woodwork and ceilings, and the Great Hall, which is a perfect cube. The collection includes portraits of famous maritime figures and works by Hogarth and Gainsborough, as well as some wartime art from the 20th century and exotic pictures from Captain Cook’s explorations.
