We may be closed at the moment but that doesn’t mean you can’t get to know about Handel & Hendrix from home during this lockdown.
Some of our team of fantastic volunteers have recorded their own audio tours focusing on some of their favourite items from our collection that would usually be on display at the museum.
Our volunteers are at the heart of the experience of visiting Handel House and the Hendrix Flat, and do a fantastic job providing information to our visitors when we are open. As part of our ongoing aim to promote knowledge, awareness and enjoyment of Handel, Hendrix and their music, we have decided to bring our volunteers’ knowledge and personal interpretations to you at home.
For now, we hope you enjoy these, and come and see the objects and paintings for yourself in real life once we are able to re-open!
