The Sir Richard Wallace Exhibition

Irish Linen Centre & Lisburn Museum Runs until 01 January 2019

The Sir Richard Wallace Exhibition: the life and legacy of a philanthropist, art collector and landlord Celebrating the bicentenary of the birth of Sir Richard Wallace (1818-90), the Irish Linen Centre and Lisburn Museum’s major new exhibition (opening 21 May 2018) tells the story of the famed philanthropist, art collector and landlord, and his lasting legacy in Lisburn. Through photographs, prints, original artefacts, 3D-printed reproductions, dioramas, and objects from Castle House – which have never been publicly displayed – this exhibition documents the life of Sir Richard, his gifts to the town and Lisburn's connection to the 'greatest ever single' bequest of art to a nation: the Wallace Collection.
