Tours and Groups

If you're visiting the Museum as a group we can provide experienced guides to take you around our Collections and offer discounted packages for groups in the Museum Cafe.

Bookings must be made in advance of your visit.



Whether your group has a special area of interest, or wishes to have an overview of the Collections, our experienced guides can help.

Groups of 15 or more - £8 per person (guide included)

Groups of 14 or less - £5 per person + £50 for your guide

Guides can take a maximum of 25 people on a tour. If your party is larger, we can arrange separate tours beginning within fifteen minutes of each other.
