From 23rd July, despite Covid 19, we will be opening the museum on Thursdays to Sundays inclusive 10am to 5pm. As usual there will be lots to see and do at this award winning museum.

Tickets must be booked in advance online so that we can control numbers visiting with social distancing in mind. You’re welcome to book on the day of your visit subject to availability. Your tickets will be emailed to you and scanned on your arrival at the GTM.

To book please select a date from the table below and then choose a time slot for your arrival. Please try not to be more than 20 minutes after this time. This slot is just for arrival and you are then welcome to stay at the museum for as long as you like. The last arrival slot is 3.30pm. This should give you plenty of time to enjoy the exhibits before we close at 5pm.

Further dates will be released at the beginning of each week on a rolling basis.

Please select a date
