The Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, Coventry Archives and Alfred's Café will reopen to the public on Monday 17 May 2021, subject to government guidance.
Our refreshed spaces, and permanent galleries await. ‘2 Tone: Lives & Legacies’ and ‘UnNatural History’ will open to the public on Friday 28 May.
The exhibition of works by international naturalists and artists will explore the role of the artist as an intrinsic part of the science of natural history, enabling our modern understanding of ecology, climate change, extinction and the threats to biodiversity.
