Every Monday Until 13 September

Masks on Mondays

To accommodate visitors who may not feel comfortable with the relaxation of mask-wearing and social distancing measures, as well as visitors that have underlying health conditions or are clinically vulnerable, the museum introduced weekly ‘Masks on Mondays’.


How does it work?

Every Monday (until 13 September), there will be reduced capacity in the galleries and mandatory face covering for all visitors and staff.

This excludes the High Street Shop, located outside the museum's main building, but includes the Atrium and Gallery shops.

What if I am exempt?

If you can't wear a face-covering, the museum recommends that you book a ticket for another day of the week or at weekends to avoid disappointment.

Please note that wearing a face-covering is encouraged across the museum at all times.

Safety first
