Our museums are reopening!

12th May 2021
About us

UCL Culture is home to many incredible museums, including the Grant Museum of Zoology, the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology and UCL Art Msueum.  See everything from dodo bones and the world’s rarest skeleton, the quagga, to Hawara Mummy portraits and the Tarkhan dress from ancient Egypt. 

We've been working hard behind-the-scenes to make our museums safe to reopen, with reduced opening times, safety measures and pre-booking in place.
Opening times
We are happy to announce that the Grant Museum of Zoology and the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology are open to the public every Wednesday and Thursday from 1pm-5pm and every Saturday from 11am-5pm. Tickets for these 2 museums are usually released 2 weeks in advance. However, our current bookable tickets currently are available until 19th June. This is because we are currently awaiting the government's June announcement with new guidelines. We will be releasing tickets soon. Thank you for your patience.

The UCL Art Museum is open on Wednesdays and Thursdays 1pm-5pm until Thursday 11 June. It will then reopen on September 2021.

How we’re keeping you safe

COVID-19 guidance

Please only visit the museum in groups up to 6 or two households, and avoid mixing with other visitors.

In each of our museums we’ve installed sanitising stations, our staff will be wearing face coverings and we’ve temporarily removed any drawing materials and shared items. We’re keeping visitor numbers low and we’ve set-up one-way routes for you to follow.

In return, you’ll need to wear a face covering inside our museums and when moving around the UCL campus (unless you are not able to for personal reasons).  As in other public spaces, you need to keep 2m away from other visitors and if you develop any symptoms of Covid-19 after your visit, please contact NHS Test & Trace. All visitors over the age of 16 will need to provide contact details on arrival, or check-in using the NHS Test & Trace app.
