Plan Your Visit

You can visit the gallery as part of a self-directed group or you can book a workshop session with a member of our Gallery Education team. If you are visiting as a self-directed group we recommend that you make a preliminary planning visit to the gallery, as our exhibitions change regularly and you may want to make sure that the displays are appropriate for your visit. We can devise sessions to meet your needs and respond to current teaching programmes.

You can find out more about the museum, general facilities, accessibility and directions on the visit us page.
