Attractive 18th-century building, with RA Collection works in all media. To celebrate its 250th birthday, the Royal Academy has completed a bold redevelopment project, providing more space for free art and educational areas. Previously comprising two separate buildings, Burlington House and Burlington Gardens, both are now joined by a ‘cultural campus’. Sat-Thur 10am-6pm, Fri 10am-10pm; check for regular special events and free lunchtime concerts. Admission free; charges for special exhibitions. 

To 13 Apr: Picasso and Paper. Not only did this revered modern artist work on paper, but he often worked with paper – discover another side to Picasso's body of work. 

From 29 Mar: Gaugin and the Impressionists. A major showcase of Impressionist works from Denmark's Ordrupgaard Collection, including pieces by Manet, Monet, Degas and Renoir.
