Henry Moore Studios & Gardens

Our sculpture gardens and studios, based at Henry Moore's former home in Hertfordshire, are the best place in the world to appreciate the artist's work.

Your group can spend the afternoon with one of our friendly, knowledgeable guides and hear Henry Moore’s remarkable story while surrounded by over 20 of his iconic sculptures.

Discover Moore's creative journey in his fascinating studios, where the origins of his monumental bronzes are evident in the hundreds of small models (maquettes) that line the shelves. See another side of the sculptor's work in the 16th century Aisled Barn, which is the only place in the world where you can view Moore’s remarkable tapestries.

As part of your visit in 2021, you will be able to enjoy This Living Hand: Edmund de Waal presents Henry Moore, an exhibition of sculpture and works on paper curated by acclaimed author and artist Edmund de Waal. This exciting exhibition looks the role of touch in sculpture and the iconography of the hand in Henry Moore's work.

Our visitor season in 2021 runs from 31 March to 31 October. We are open Wednesdays to Sundays and Bank Holidays, 11am - 5pm.

School visits

Due to the ongoing coronavirus situation, we are not currently taking group bookings. We hope to be able to resume school visits when government restrictions are lifted.

We offer guided tours, free of charge, to school and college groups from Year 3 upwards.

Bookings can be made for one class (30 pupils) and their adult helpers on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings. The guided tour takes approximately 1½ hours, and groups have the use of our interpretation room, situated in our new visitor centre.
