Open House

22 September, 10am - 2pm

Following the success of its previous participation in Open House London, the German Historical Institute is delighted to again take part in the capital’s largest annual festival of architecture and design. Originally constructed in the later seventeen century, 17 Bloomsbury Square, a Grade II listed building, was remodelled by John Nash c1777-8. Highlights include an Adam-style ceiling on the 1st floor and a beautiful staircase with wrought-iron balustrade. Once home to the Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain, it has housed the German Historical Institute since 1982. The Institute will be open on Saturday 22 September between 10am and 2pm. There will be guided tours every 15 minutes on the History of the Building and Surroundings.
