Ben Uri Gallery and Museum, London: Art, Identity, Migration
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Known as 'The Art Museum for Everyone', the museum collection and programme of events both focus on the universal themes of Art, Identity and Migration.
The Ben Uri Collection is internationally recognised and encompasses over 1300 works, principally from the opening decades of the 20th century, including Chagall, Auerbach, Bomberg, Epstein, Gertler, Grosz, Liebermann, Pissarro, Solomon, Kossoff, Soutine, Ury, and Wolmark. Ben Uri presents four major exhibitions a year.
Note: though Kilburn Park is the nearest tube station 'as the crow flies', for practical purposes the St Johns Wood station is more convenient! The easiest way to reach the Gallery from the tube station is to turn right on Finchley Road, left on Marlborough Place, and right on Abbey Road. Follow Abbey Road to Boundary Road, turn left, and you will see the Ben Uri Gallery across the road.
Please double-check opening times on the museum website before making a trip! On our last visit, we misread the opening times on the Ben Uri website (which were also wrong on Google) and were disappointed to arrive at the front door only to find it locked.
