Grant Museum Late Summer Closure 2015

The Grant Museum needs to replace our aged heating system, for the benefit of our visitors, specimens and staff. We are doing everything we can to minimise disruption to our visitors and students, but we will have to close for around two weeks to complete enabling works to replace the heaters.

We will be closed from Monday 24th August, and currently plan to reopen on Wednesday 9th September. There are a number of variables in the project, so please check back on this page if you plan to visit around that time. We will keep it updated with the latest information.

We are very sorry for any disappointment caused by these essential works.

Opening hours

We are open to the public Monday - Saturday 1-5pm. We are also open for group and research visits on weekday mornings 10am - 1pm, when advanced booking is required.

Due to the holiday closure of UCL, we are not able to open on a few days surrounding Christmas and Easter.

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.
