Following the recent announcement that Coventry is now in Tier 4, we will remain closed until further notice. We will announce our reopening date following government announcements around Tiers and associated restrictions.

We also understand at times such as this, it is more important than ever, to continue access to arts and culture.

Please visit our social media channels or subscribe to our newsletter to access our collections and exhibitions online.

Located in the heart of Coventry city centre, next to the historic Cathedral, the Herbert is the perfect place to learn more about the history of Coventry and immerse yourself in some art and culture.
