Back to Henry Moore Institute

Coronavirus information

Last updated: 6pm, Friday 20 March

In light of the current Government advice about the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Henry Moore Institute will be closed from 5pm on Tuesday 17 March.

This affects our exhibitions, library and archive, and events until further notice.

We are extremely disappointed to close, but the safety of our audiences, company and staff is of utmost importance. We apologise for the disruption and wish you well during this difficult period.

To ensure your health and the safety of those around you, here is the latest public health advice provided by the NHS and the government.
