PLAN YOUR VISIT

Please make sure you read our Visit Us page to find out about measures we’ve introduced to make sure families can enjoy a safe visit to the museum.

We have reintroduced our booking system now that our indoor spaces are open. We don’t anticipate being so busy that we will need to turn people away, but we do have to keep an eye on numbers in order to keep everyone safe. To avoid disappointment, especially at half term, booking is strongly advised, particularly if you plan to visit the galleries. If you don’t book in advance, all members of your party (aged 16+) will be asked to check in with the NHS Test and Trace app or to leave details at reception.

REFRESHMENTS

Enjoy a selection of hot and cold drinks, sandwiches and snacks from our café.

You are welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy in the garden. Picnic benches with parasols are available or bring a picnic mat and sit on the lovely, big lawn!

OPENING TIMES

The museum, café, shop and garden are all closed on Mondays. Click here to see our opening times.

PARKING

Please note that the museum’s car park can fill up quickly at busy times. Parking is also available in the University car park on Acacia Road, adjacent to the museum. Please collect a permit from reception on arrival if parking in Acacia Road car park.

We encourage visitors to use public transport wherever possible. Please visit our Getting Here page for details.
