The museum is now closed for redevelopment until February 2023.

This is so work can take place safely on the final stage of construction. We look forward to welcoming you back in 2023 when we emerge as a bigger, more inclusive and more wondrous museum.

In the meantime, why not book our Healing Chapel or Inflatable Museum to visit your school whilst we're closed?
