Henry Moore Institute

Henry Moore Institute welcomes everyone to visit their Galleries, Research Library and Archive of Sculptors’ Papers for free to experience, study and enjoy sculpture from around the world.

The Institute can be found next door to Leeds Art Gallery, in the centre of Leeds, the city where Henry Moore (1898-1986) began his training as a sculptor. Their changing programme of historical, modern and contemporary exhibitions and events encourage thinking about what sculpture is, how it is made and the artists who make it.

As part of the Henry Moore Foundation, they are a hub for sculpture, connecting a global network of artists and scholars, continuing research into the art form and ensuring that sculpture is accessible and celebrated by a wide audience.
