If you’d like to attend multiple Terrific Tuesdays (there will be 9 during the 2017 season), and Museum events then you can purchase an Annual Pass which costs £30 per adult, £18 per child and family pass prices start from £65.

  • Enjoy themed family crafts and activities in our famous Terrific Tuesdays!
  • Activities run from 11 am – 3.30 pm
  • Plenty of space for picnics
  • Baby changing facilities
