Visit the museum and join a march through time following Britain’s struggle for democracy over two centuries.

The museum and shop are open every day from 10.00am to 5.00pm, including bank holidays.  We are closed on 24, 25, 26 December and 1 January.

Admission to the museum is free to all, donations are gratefully received.  Most of our events are also free.  Sometimes there will be a nominal charge for events but this will be clearly marked.  Our events programme offers something to enjoy for visitors of all ages and abilities; check out what’s on at the museum for more information.

Browse our shop for unique books and gifts and round off your day with a bite to eat in The Left Bank cafe bar.

The museum is fully accessible where possible.  See the Access page for further information.
