Before you visit

- The hands-on nature of much of the centre means we have closed many of our usual spaces (including the Young Explorers' Zone). 

- Pre-booking online is essential. This applies to Members, children aged 4 and under and carers. Members must bring Membership cards with them when they visit.

Complimentary tickets issued before lockdown and all special offers (including child-free offers for using public transport) are not valid at this time. Members of the Museums Association are still entitled to free entry and should book a free ticket for Members at checkout.

- You can book a maximum of five tickets in a single transaction. (A family ticket is counted as four tickets.) You are welcome to book more tickets, if there is availability, and as long as you are adhering to current government advice on groups. Please note you will have to go through the checkout process again when adding extra tickets.

- If you are a Member, you must bring your Membership card when you visit. This is essential, as we will not have our usual check in methods available. Please be considerate of other visitors by only booking one slot per week and let us know if you can no longer make your booked slot.

- Slots can be booked up to midnight the day before you’d like to visit. Tickets are nonrefundable and non-transferable.

Wheelchair and ear defender hire is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Locker facilities are not available at this time. If you have any queries about accessibility or need support, please email

The safety of our visitors and team is very important to us. See our safety video for information on what we have introduced.

Face coverings are compulsory for all visitors. Exemptions: visitors with disabilities and those with breathing difficulties if they are wearing the Sunflower lanyard. Children under 11 are also exempt.

- If you have any of the symptoms of COVID-19, or if you have been in contact with anyone who has the virus in the last 14 days, please don't visit.
