Need to know

Our summer exhibition Which Way North extends throughout the entire building. Most of our permanent galleries have been redesigned for this exciting temporary show and some attractions are not currently on display, including our scale model of Hadrian's Wall. We apologise that parts of the Butterfly Wall are currently obscured by the temporary gift shop.

The Planetarium is currently closed for essential maintenance.
