We are open from 10.00–18.00 (last entry 17.15) every day except from the 24–26 December.
The Museum will be closed on the morning of 24 October, opening at 12.30pm. This is for an event to mark the launch of Information Age, our major new permanent gallery, which will be open to visitors on Saturday 25 October.
Galleries start to close 30 minutes before the Museum closes.
During school holidays our opening hours are 10.00–19.00 (last entry 18.15), except for the last Wednesday of the month when we close at 18.00. Our interactive galleries (Launchpad, The Garden and Pattern Pod) will close at 18.00 during this time.
On the last Wednesday of each month, except December, we open from 18.45–22.00 for Lates, our free night for adults.
Listening Post is currently closed.
