How do I use my e-Ticket?

You will be emailed an order confirmation that will include your unique Booking Reference Number and a barcode that also contains this number. You may make a note of this number and take with you when you visit the Museum in place of a ticket, although we suggest printing out the email where possible as this will contain a barcode which will grant you quicker access.

Do you issue refunds?
