The Henry Moore Institute is now open.
Our galleries are currently closed while we install two new exhibitions, opening on 17 September: Julia Crabtree and William Evans: Slip and Henry Moore: Configuration. While the galleries are closed, you can still study in our Research Library and Archive of Sculptors' Papers.
Booking tickets to visit our galleries is no longer necessary, though we advise groups of six or more book in advance to make sure there is space for you all to visit the galleries at the same time. You can still book in advance to visit the Sculpture Research Library if you want to ensure a space is available at the time of your choosing.
The Archive of Sculptors' Papers is free to visit and open to anyone who wishes to explore the collection.
The archive is open via prior appointment only, Tuesday to Friday, 10am-5pm. It is advisable to get in touch at least a month prior to your preferred date to visit.
The Institute is closed on bank holidays.
Using the Archive
The archive is free to use. When visiting for the first time you will need to complete a registration form and produce proof of your identity. The form includes our archive rules and by signing the form you accept these conditions.
