Reopening information

Our permanent displays and special exhibition (Within The Reach Of All: The Century Guild) are open to the public. Our opening times are Tuesday to Sunday, 10am – 5pm.

As capacity is likely to be reduced we strongly advise you to book in advance using the safe and secure Art Tickets platform. Booking guarantees access to the Gallery and saves time. Admission is free but please make a donation if you can.
