We are in the congestion charge zone, with a few pay-and-display parking spaces and green-badge bays in Lincoln’s Inn Fields.
We are a small, but very popular museum housed in an 19th-century townhouse – that means, sometimes, there’ll be a short queue outside.
Our friendly Visitor Assistants will greet you at the entrance. Because some areas of the Museum are narrow and filled with objects, they will give you a clear plastic bag for any small items you’d like to carry, and will store larger bags in our cloakroom. Unfortunately, we can’t take suitcases.
We also ask you to turn off phones. Photography is not permitted as this maintains the unique, magical atmosphere inside.
Please note: During August there will be some scaffolding in the Dome Area at the back of the Museum, as we complete the final stage of our restoration work. We have tried to keep disruption to a minimum, but there will be minor restricted access in places, and the 3,500-year-old Egyptian sarcophagus will be unavailable to view while we protect it from the work. We apologise for any inconvenience. Find out more about the restoration work.
Our shop has a wide range of gift ideas to suit all ages and pockets - from bespoke jewellery and beautiful books, to exclusive products inspired by our collection. Visit during Museum opening hours or shop online. Every purchase supports the Museum.
We’ve partnered with Benugo to offer our visitors discount vouchers at Fields Bar & Kitchen, nestled in the greenery of Lincoln’s Inn Fields just opposite the Museum.
