The Royal Collection at Osborne House

Many of the great paintings in the state rooms, and Queen Victoria's belongings in the family rooms, are part of the Royal Collection.  More objects from the Royal Collection from around the world are in the museum in the gardens at the Swiss Cottage. The royal children were avid collectors. They quickly filled up a room in the cottage with natural history specimens, fossils and antiquities, so a new separate museum, also in the Swiss-chalet style, was built nearby.  The museum remains with its contents of thousands of objects, including the first transatlantic telegraph message and a five legged deer.
