Opening Hours:

We are open Wednesday - Sunday from 10am to 5pm. Last entry to the historic house is 4pm. We are usually closed on Monday and Tuesdays. 

We open most bank holiday Mondays. 

Please check our planned closure page, to make sure you don't miss us.


We want our museum to be as inclusive as possible. If you have special access requirements, head to our accessibility page for details, or contact us on 020 7405 2127 / and a member of our team will be glad to help. 


Some of the rooms in the historic house are quite small, so we recommend leaving any large bags or suitcases in one of the local storage sites, such as at King's Cross and St Pancras International Rail Stations. 

Only small handbags or backpacks are allowed into the historic house, to be worn on the front or carried by hand. There is a small, unattended cloakroom at the museum. 

Pushchairs & Prams:

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

Getting Here:
