About the Museum

The Jewel House is a vault housing the British Crown Jewels in the Waterloo Block (formerly a barracks) at the Tower of London. It was opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 1994 and refurbished in 2012. The Jewel House displays The Crown Jewels, part of the Royal Collection and still regularly used by The Queen. These include the 800 year old Coronation Spoon, as well as St Edward's Crown, worn at the moment that the monarch is crowned at Westminster Abbey, and the Imperial State Crown.
