Our public Highlights Tours are capped at 8 visitors and are very popular. If your group is smaller than 8 people, you may be able to secure enough tickets on one of these tours, in which an expert takes you around the Museum and tells you the stories behind its treasures. Highlights Tours take place at noon on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, and also at 11:00 on Saturdays and Sundays. It costs £12.50 per person. Visit the tours page to check availability and book.
For groups of 8 to 20 people from any not-for-profit educational or cultural organisation. Groups can visit on Fridays at 10:00, 14:00, and 15:30.
Visits are free, but as a charity we’d really appreciate a donation to support our work.
If you like, you can request an introductory talk by one of our expert staff for £50. Please see the booking page for more information.

Should higher education groups require a teaching session in the Museum's research library, these can be pre-arranged on available Friday afternoons anytime between 14:00 and 17:00. To arrange a library session, once your group visit is booked on this page, it is essential that you also get in touch with Frances Sands, Curator of Drawings and Books: firstname.lastname@example.org in order to discuss the feasibility and content of the session. Library group numbers are limited to 12. Suggested donation of minimum £50.
For Higher Education groups we can offer alternative times if the group booking slots are not a possibility for your timetable, these are subject to availability. Please contact email@example.com to enquire.
