Henry Moore lived at Perry Green for 40 years. Today, it is a highly regarded visitor destination with inspiring views of his sculpture in the gardens and fields.
Moore's old studios are open to the public, showing his creative process from small maquettes through to monumental outdoor sculptures. His former home Hoglands gives a touching insight into Moore's domestic life, including his remarkable book collection and a Picasso painting which he kept in his kitchen. A rotating exhibition programme changes to exhibit Moore's textiles, tapestries and drawings.
The Foundation is currently improving its visitor centre and archive. The Gallery, Tapestry Barn and Hoglands are closed to visitors in 2015, although a small display of sculptures can be seen in the grounds. The full site will reopen in 2016.
