Admission to the Museum is free of charge.

Opening hours

We are open to the public Monday - Saturday 1-5pm (including the bank holidays in May and August).

Due to holiday closure of UCL, we are not able to open on a few days surrounding Easter and Christmas. The museum is closed Saturday 22 December 2018 - Tuesday 1 January 2019.

We are open for group and research visits on weekday mornings 10am - 1pm, when advanced booking is required.

The museum welcomes family visitors warmly. Children, however young, as well as adults get a great deal out of their visits but please note that children under 11 must be accompanied by an adult.

Any groups of ten or more must book in advance. This is to avoid clashes - the museum is used for a number of purposes and isn't suited to more than one large group at once.


Access to the museum, and all public areas within it, is step-free. There is a shallow ramp leading up to the main entrance from the street.
