Keeping everyone safe

We want to ensure that all visitors, staff and volunteers feel safe and comfortable when exploring our sites.

Our COVID-19 safety measures include enhanced cleaning, safe distancing and ticketed entry. Please support us by following these simple guidelines:

Book tickets online in advance wherever possible. Timed tickets ensure that visits are spread out throughout the day and capacities are managed effectively. You must have a ticket to enter any of our sites, including the free National Maritime Museum and Queen’s House. 

Limited tickets will be available if you turn up on the day, but to guarantee entry we strongly advise booking in advance.

We highly recommend mask wearing at all indoor venues and enclosed spaces. Wearing a face covering helps protect the people around you. For the benefit of visitors and staff, please wear one if you are able. 

Keep a safe distance from other groups and be courteous to visitors and staff, especially in smaller gallery spaces.

Pay by card at our shops and cafés. Protective screens will remain at our tills and contactless payments are encouraged.

Enhanced cleaning regimes are in operation, and hand sanitiser is available throughout our museums. All our toilets and facilities are open.

One-way visitor routes have proved popular and so we will continue to use them to help guide you round our historic locations. The National Maritime Museum however will no longer be one-way: you can choose which galleries and exhibitions you want to visit first.

Please do not visitif you are displaying coronavirus symptoms or have been told to self isolate. Email to rearrange your visit.

What's changed?

We're happy to announce that we are currently able to offer our full range of visitor attractions:

Interactive displays and touch screens have been activated, with hand sanitiser located nearby.

All museum galleries are currently open, including family-friendly spaces such as the AHOY! Children's Gallery. In some enclosed areas we may have to limit numbers during busy periods, but our staff and volunteers will be on hand to advise. 

Capacities for timed events such as planetarium shows, tours and performances have been increased in line with health and safety guidelines. We are keeping this under constant review.
