Regular opening hours

Tuesday to Friday: 10am to 4pm

Saturday: 10am to 5pm

​Admission is free, but we kindly ask visitors for a suggested donation of £5 towards their visit.

We are closed on Sundays, Mondays and Bank Holidays, together with Easter Bank Holiday weekend (including Good Friday), and from Christmas Eve to New Year's Day.

Many school groups use our galleries in term-time weekdays between 10am and 2.15pm. If you wish to see a particularly gallery it may be advisable to visit outside these times or contact us in advance. The galleries are generally quieter after 2.30pm.

Please note: we have planned gallery closures for essential maintenance in January to March 2022. Find out which areas of the museum this will affect and when.
