Capital Project update

Please note that building work is currently taking place at Handel House and the museum will remain open throughout the works. There will be no lift access or toilets for about six months from Monday 27 April 2015 and visitors will have to use the staircases. There will also be restricted access to discreet areas of the building but the historic rooms including the Rehearsal and Performance Room where our weekly concerts take place will remain open throughout the project.

If you have any questions or concerns about visiting we suggest you call the museum office on 020 7495 1685 before arrival to best accommodate your needs. For more information about the Capital Project click here.
