This is not a huge, blockbuster exhibition, but it is beautifully curated. Early HM drawings and quite figurative sculptures, were contrasted with an excellent selection of work by his contemporaries. An absolute must for anyone interested in the development of modern British art.

We visited specifically to see the Becoming Henry Moore exhibition which was interesting, but would have benefited from some more biographical context. Well appointed gallery space, but definitely one for specialist interests rather than generalists

Currently showing special exhibitions by a Japanese artist: we had mixed feelings about his style but some really interesting pieces. I particularly liked his perspective piece

Smallish gallery, well laid out. Named artist exhibition in a couple of rooms with one or two small side rooms featuring other artists. I think your visit will depend on what artist(s) they are showing at the time...don't come expecting Henry Moore pieces. Free entry,...More

We found it disappointing even though it is free to visit. Some galleries were closed and we only ended up seeing one or two of the galleries.

It is located on the Headrow in the center of Leeds right next door to the Leeds City Art gallery. It is an impressive black marble fronted building and like the Art Gallery is absolutely free to enter. The Henry Moore is a huge square...More
