PLEASE NOTE: All visits by groups of 10 people or more must be booked in advance.

We admit Art Fund Members for free.


We regret that on rare occasions the Museum will close early. To minimise any inconvenience, a full list of planned closures is available here.


Due to security restrictions, we regret that we cannot store large bags or suitcases at the Museum during your visit. We have an unattended cloakroom where small suitcases and bags may be left. The maximum size of luggage that we permit into the Museum is regulation international cabin baggage: 56cm L x 45cm W x 25cm D. 

Alternatively, we recommend using lockers and storage sites in the local area, such as at King’s Cross and St Pancras International rail stations.

Only handbags and small backpacks are allowed into the Museum. This is due to the small size of some of the rooms. You will be asked to carry small backpacks by hand or to wear them on your front.


Due to restrictions in space in the historic house, please note we are not able to allow pushchairs into the house and they will need to be left in the cloakroom.
