FAQs / Help

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.

How do I access virtual events?

In addition to your e-ticket confirming purchase you will be sent further instructions and access details 24 hours ahead of events. If you don't receive them or are having issues please email

Do you issue refunds?

Tickets are non refundable.
Upon request we will endeavour to accomodate a change of date up to 48 hours in advance, subject to availability.

If the ticket is for general admission, please check the Museum website for updates any periods of closure for refurbishment works or private hires that may effect the day of your visit.
