The National Portrait Gallery to Reopen Summer 2023


The National Portrait Gallery Reopening Date Announced

This year, The National Portrait Gallery’s Christmas gift to you is the announcement of our reopening date!

The National Portrait Gallery will be opening its doors for the first time since 2020 on 22 June 2023, and we are so looking forward to welcoming you back. Please do add the date to your diaries.

Supported by major grants from the Blavatnik Family Foundation, The National Lottery Heritage Fund, the Garfield Weston Foundation and the Ross Foundation, as well as Reopening Partner, Herbert Smith Freehills, visitors to the new National Portrait Gallery this summer will experience a complete redisplay of the Collection, a transformational refurbishment of the building, as well as an enhanced welcome and greater access through our new entrance.
