Tuesday Tours

Join the curators to explore the museum with a series of free 30-minute tours. With a new gallery to explore each week, you'll have the chance to discover our Pre-Raphaelite treasures, delve into prehistoric culture, or take a walk with our natural science collection. 

With their expert knowledge, our curators will give a fascinating introduction to a gallery of their choice, giving you a chance to get some insider insights and ask those questions that you've aways wanted to know the answer to. What better way to start (or end) your museum visit!
