Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art
Housed in a Grade II-listed Georgian property, the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art showcases the work of early 20th-century Italian artists such as Boccioni, Carrà, and Sironi, and is the only museum in London dedicated entirely to Italian artworks. The museum’s six galleries, cafe, and garden offer a tranquil getaway from the busy city.

The Basics
You can explore the Estorick Collection at your own pace or purchase a group tour directly through the museum. A year-round program of classes, talks, and late-night events provides immersive opportunities for art lovers and families, while London Pass-holders can enter the gallery for free, and also benefit from included public transport use and skip-the-line access to many more London attractions. Hop-on hop-off buses also stop close to the museum and allow you to create your own sightseeing itinerary.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Only four of the six galleries are currently wheelchair accessible.
  • The unique museum is a must for art lovers.
  • Group tours are only available through the museum for parties of more than 10; there is an additional charge per person.
  • After exploring the museum, spend an hour exploring the bouji boutiques and cafes on Upper Street.

How to Get There

The 271 bus drops you directly at the door, while nearby Upper Street is served by several more local buses. Highbury & Islington train and tube station is just a 5 minute walk away. Driving is best avoided, especially on Arsenal match days.

When to Get There

The museum is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, and opens late on Sundays. The museum participates in the First Thursdays initiative, which sees more than 150 east London galleries adopt later opening hours on the first Thursday of each month.

Eric Estorick
The collection was originally a personal project for art dealer Eric Estorick, who was inspired to start the collection during a honeymoon in Italy with his wife Salome in the late 1940s. Over the 1950s, the couple amassed more and more Italian artwork. Between 1966 and 1975, the collection was on long-term loan to London’s Tate. A few months before his death in 1993, Estorick set up a foundation in his and his late wife’s names, and donated the entire collection.
