Pushchairs/backpack carriers

Pushchairs are permitted in the museum; backpack carriers are not; you can take these to the cloakroom. We have a limited number of pushchairs available for your convenience.


There is a free, supervised cloakroom where you can leave your bag, umbrella, daypack or school backpack. Small handbags (no larger than an A4 paper size) are permitted inside the museum. Unfortunately, we do not have the facilities for travel luggage, folding bikes, musical instruments, skateboards etc. We have a separate cloakroom for groups and school groups; enquire at the information desk.

At the Museum Square there is a Lockerpoint where you can store your luggage safely. Click here for more information.
