The re-displayed Decorative Art Gallery features ceramics, glass, silver & textiles from the 17th to mid 20th centuries including William Burges, Whitefriars Glass, Arts & Crafts, Tiffany and Edward Bawden.

The history of lace-making can be seen through a comprehensive survey of East Midlands and international lace industries. The Gallery also houses the world famous Thomas Lester Collection of Bedfordshire Maltese Lace.
