Men, Women and Things‘ is taken from the title of the 6th Duke of Portland’s memoirs and is an apt description of the current displays that include rare works and masterpieces from a collection that has been assembled over 400 years by the Dukes of Portland and their families.

The display includes a wide variety of works from the internationally significant Portland Collection, from grand full-length oil painted portraits to tiny miniatures, furniture to jewellery, books to ceramics.
