MuseumLab is a welcoming new interactive space that provides greater access to our collections.

MuseumLab offers a chance to see work behind the scenes, an opportunity meet curators and other staff, and find out more about the two million objects we hold in our collections.

There are also activities for children.

Opening Times

MuseumLab is open for special events

and also opens on some weekday afternoons between 2-5pm for Behind the Scenes sessions. Visitors can pop in and get up close with objects not usually on display and discover hidden stories.
These sessions take place on an ad-hoc basis and will be sign posted on the day in the museum.
