Book your Tickets

Tickets for SM&AG are free. Visits to SM&AG typically last up to two hours. To enable social distancing to be followed, a maximum of 50 people will be permitted entry into the museum in the morning, and another 50 in the afternoon.

Tickets must be pre-booked for each person in your party, including babies and children. This is so museum staff are aware of how many people will be visiting and to make sure social distancing can be followed to give all visitors a safe and relaxing experience while journeying through the galleries.

Keeping you safe
A number of important safety measures have been put in place to help achieve our top priority – to protect the health and safety of staff, volunteers and visitors.

When visiting you will notice signage, screens and social distancing queuing systems in place as well as a clearly marked one-way system around the museum.

Toilets and touch points will also be cleaned more regularly with hand washing facilities for staff and visitors readily available. Toilets are also only available to customers of the Museum and stop. café bar to limit the number of people in the building and help keep them clean.

Uniformed staff will also be available to help ensure safety measures are being followed. But they’re also very knowledgeable about the collections so feel free to ask them any questions, too!
