The Palace of Arts was part of the British Empire Exhibition held at Wembley Park, from April 23, 1924 to October 31, 1925. This expo had 56 nations from across the globe taking part. The Palace of Arts contained historical room sets, as well as painting and sculpture since the eighteenth century. It also displayed the Queen’s Dolls House, now at Windsor Castle. The Exhibition’s official aim was “to stimulate trade, strengthen bonds that bind mother Country to her Sister States and Daughters, to bring into closer contact the one with each other, to enable all who owe allegiance to the British flag to meet on common ground and learn to know each other”. It cost £12 million and was the largest exhibition ever staged anywhere in the world attracting 27 million visitors.
