With the effort of many people, the Handel House Museum has opened. The guides are volunteer. We used our London Pass to visit. Fortunately, the day we visited a knowledgeable and communicative guide was giving a tour. We tagged along with him and the students he was addressing. Don't go to the Handel House for the furnishings or the general information. The Museum has done a good job of providing printed cards detailing what is available to see. There is a collection of paintings and manuscripts. It is amazing that this house, which was the rented, London home of Handel for the end of his life, is open for viewing. Visiting the interior gives one an understanding of where and how the composer lived. It is a privilege to walk through the home where Handel worked. The Museum has done a good job of replicating the original interior of the home. There was much undoing of generations of "updating." Because the Museum has brought together the artifacts displayed, this is not a definitive collection of Handel memorabilia. It is, however, worth a visit. A guide told me that "the Handel organ" (owned by Handel? played by Handel?) is owned and displayed a that the parish church nearby, St. George's.
