You can book your visit through our eventbright page where you can also see any new exhibitions, events and fun family activities that we’ll have available. Walk-in visits will also be available.
What will my visit be like?
Your safety, and that of our staff, is our highest priority. That’s why we’ve introduced timed visits to stagger entry flow and help with social distancing. A ticket allows a group of up to six people from the same household or support bubble to visit the building for one hour. Visitors are also required to wear face coverings during their visit. Combined with a one-way route and an enhanced cleaning regime, including hand sanitisers on entry, we are pleased to be welcoming our visitors back safely.
