Best Time to Visit:

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 we strongly recommend coming on a weekday afternoon/evening. Exhibitions in the gallery can be difficult to see on busy evenings/weekends as the cocktail bar overlaps. 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.

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.
