The Museum contains some material that some parents might feel was unsuitable for children, such as erotica or the remains of dead people and animals. We request that parents visit the museum first before bringing their children.
**Children are permitted in the venue before 5PM, only when accompanied by a parent or guardian.**
The Museum and Cocktail Bar get very busy at weekends and sometimes we have to operate a 'one in one out' policy. If you are planning to visit the Museum only, we strongly recommend coming on a weekday or before 3PM on the weekend. Exhibitions in the gallery can be difficult to see on busy evenings/weekends as the cocktail bar overlaps with the exhibition space. Reservations are always encouraged for a table in our Cocktail Bar.
Sometimes we need to close for essential repairs, exorcisms, private events, floods & staff shortages. Please click here to see what dates we are closed. If travelling far we recommend calling to confirm availability on the day.
Any planned closures will be posted here: The venue will be closed from 13:30-14:30 on Friday 7th December and for a private hire from 16:00-23:00 on Friday 14th December. We will also be closed for the holidays from 25th December - 2nd January, reopening at 5PM on Thursday 3rd January. No other closures are currently scheduled.
Visitors are very welcome to take photos for their own personal use, for professional use please contact us in advance for additional information. More information on location hire can be found at the bottom of the page here.
Due to the historic nature of the building some people may find accessing the museum a challenge - the ground floor has a steep step up and access to the Wunderkabinett is via a steep spiral staircase.
