In 2017 the new centre became a finalist in the Art Fund Museum of the Year 2017 competition and it was looking in immaculate condition in June, including in the shop:

In November 2019 a very special exhibition came to Palace House which I attended the opening of: George IV Royalty, Racing & Reputation - of exceptional quality because nearly every exhibit was on loan from H.M. The Queen.
As it runs to 19 April 2020, it deserves an excursion to Newmarket to see it.
