Handel House: a stage for Handel in the here and now.
Previously the house where the genius of Baroque music was born and lived, today first and foremost a museum offering harmonious permanent and special exhibitions – that’s Handel House. What other place could convey such vivid impressions of Handel’s life, work and times?
Valuable paintings and drawings, musical instruments, sounds and carefully written texts tell you all about Handel’s creative work and his artistic genius, as well as about musical instruments and illustrious contemporary events.
Handel House has been a museum since 1948, and of course much has happened since then – it has been renovated and redesigned, exhibits have been purchased and new findings made by research into Handel.
You can enjoy the fruits of the museum’s evolution in two permanent exhibitions, “Handel – The European” and “Historical Musical Instruments”. Our special exhibitions are further stars in the firmament of Handel’s life and work – don’t miss them!
Please note: Handel House is a historic building and consequently not fully accessible to the disabled. Please ask us for details.
