The safety and security of our staff and visitors is very important to us. Face coverings are recommended for the protection of yourself and others, unless you’re exempt. Hand sanitiser stations can be found throughout the Museum and we recommend washing or sanitising your hands regularly. See the Visit page for more information.

The visitor and Member cloakroom is located near the Main entrance on Great Russell Street. See the Members' FAQs for more information.
