In a single street in London, separated by a wall, are the homes of two of history's most significant musical artists. 25 Brook Street is the house that belonged to George Frideric Handel where he composed some of the most enduring baroque music including ‘Messiah’. On the top floor of 23 Brook Street two centuries later, Jimi Hendrix lived there with his girlfriend, record player and guitar. Weekly concerts and regular exhibitions bring both worlds to life. Free rehearsal space is available for baroque ensembles of up to 4 musicians and tailored school visits.

Originally founded in 1884, it has been in its present location on Downing Street since 1913. MAA’s collections span nearly two million years of human history, on all six inhabited continents. Our oldest object is a 1.8 million year old stone tool from Olduvai Gorge, whilst the newest are made by contemporary artists.
