The Handel House Museum is currently undergoing building works ahead of a relaunch in February 2016. Until then the entrance is on street level at 25 Brook Street, and there is no lift access or toilet facilities.

The house that was Handel's home between 1723 and his death in 1759, where he composed his 'Messiah', 'Music for the Royal Fireworks' and several operas, is now a museum devoted to the composer's life and work, presented in the context of the London he knew. 23 Brook Street, the upper floors of which were home to rock legend Jimi Hendrix in 1968 and 1969, provides a space for changing exhibitions and events. The house was part of the same development as number 25 and has been restored accordingly. Music-inspired family activities, lectures and concerts are a regular feature on the programme of Handel House Museum. Talks take place on Saturday afternoons, on subjects including costumes, paintings, music and London in the eighteenth century.

I went to Handel House with my boyfriend to see a performance. If you are a Handel fan, like him, you are in your element here. Me, not being a Handel fan, appreciated the beautiful house and lovely things inside it.
