The Sabauda Gallery is an art collection in Turin, Italy, which contains the royal art collections amassed by the House of Savoy over the centuries.

The Gallery is presently located on Via Accademia delle Scienze 6, on the second floor, though there are plans to relocate it to one of the palaces of the former royal family in the future.

The collection unites the works from the Royal Palace of Turin, the picture gallery of the Savoy-Carignan, and the artworks from the Palazzo Durazzo of Genoa, acquired in 1824. Carlo Emanuele I of Savoy commissioned the brothers Zuccari to design the gallery. In October 2, 1832, King Carlo Alberto of Savoy inaugurated the royal gallery containting 365 paintings. The collection was transferred in 1865 to the Palazzo dell'Accademia delle Scienze where it stands today, alongside with the Egyptian Museum.

The collection holds a substantial array of paintings from the Flemish, Dutch, and Northern Schools such as Jan Brueghel, Gerrit Dou Jan van Eyck, Hans Memling, Rembrandt, and Anthony Van Dyck, as well as paintings by Italian artists such as Macrino d'Alba, Sandro Botticelli, Bernardo Daddi, Beato Angelico, Piero del Pollaiolo, Agnolo Bronzino, Bernardo Bellotto, Giovanni Canavesio, Orazio Gentileschi, Andrea Mantegna, Girolamo Savoldo, Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, Gaudenzio and Defendente Ferrari, Giovanni Bellini, Guercino, Francesco Cairo, Sebastiano Ricci, Giovanni Martino Spanzotti, Titian, Paolo Veronese, and Tintoretto.
