Visiting the Henry Moore Institute
Discover our contemporary art space in Leeds city centre’s cultural hub.
We welcome everyone to visit our galleries, research library & archive to experience, study and enjoy sculpture from around the world.
The Institute is currently closed for refurbishment, and will reopen in summer 2024.
The Henry Moore Institute is closed for refurbishment until summer 2024.
Our next research season, ‘Brâncuși and Britain’, will be running off-site from February to June 2024, with online discussions and in-person conferences.
Research library & archive
The library and archive are open by appointment while our refurbishment work is taking place.
Unfortunately, this means there will be access restrictions, which will make it difficult to accommodate everyone.
If you are a researcher who would like to use our resources while the building is closed, please first browse our online library collection and archive catalogue, then contact the Archivist and Librarian to discuss your needs in advance.
Schools, families & groups
While we are closed, our engagement programme with schools and community groups will continue to operate off-site around Leeds. More details on how you can get involved will be posted here soon.
Find us in the centre of Leeds, next door to Leeds Art Gallery on The Headrow. We’re only a few minutes’ walk from Millennium Square, Leeds City Museum and the shopping areas of Briggate, Leeds Trinity and the Victoria Quarter.
