Visitors are reminded that the Rule of Six or two households still applies.

If you are eligible for free admission, please only book a ticket if you are confident you will be able to attend; the Museum has a very limited capacity and relies on admission fees for its survival.


Closed Monday and Tuesdays. 


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.
