The new picnic area on the ground floor next to the Main Hall includes sinks, bins, work surfaces and lots of picnic benches. It was been beautifully decorated to complement the Museum Cafe.
There’s no need to book – you are welcome to use the picnic area whenever you would like to.
Did you know the museum is home to around two and a half million bugs? We don’t want anymore. Please enjoy food and drink in the Picnic Area, Museum Cafe and Main Hall only. Crumbs and spillages can attract creepy crawlies that ruin our objects. You’ll find lots of bins around the museum.
