I'm a Royal Museums Greenwich member. Do I still need to book?

As a Member you do not need to pre-book your general admissions tickets to Royal Museums Greenwich, simply scan your card for fast-track access. However you are strongly recommended to pre-book shows at the Peter Harrison Planetarium, as they are often sold-out in advance, especially on weekends and school holidays.

If you have any questions, please email membership@rmg.co.uk or phone the team on 020 8312 6678 (Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm).

How do I pay?

We accept all major debit/credit cards. Please note, we can only accept AMEX cards in person at one of our sites, or over the phone.

Is there a booking fee for admissions?

No. However, we do charge a non-refundable booking fee for some special events and experiences.

How do I get my ticket?

You will receive your booking confirmation by email. Just bring this with you either on your mobile device or as a printout. If you are a Member you will also need to show your Membership card.

Unfortunately, our on-site ticket scanners are unable to read tickets on mobile phones with cracked screens. Please note we are unable to send tickets by post.

Why can't I select the timeslot that I want?

Timeslots are offered on a first-come, first-served basis, so your chosen timeslot may be fully booked. We only have a limited capacity for each timeslot to ensure we can maintain social distancing.

Can I arrive earlier than the time shown on my ticket?

We will do our best to fit you in if we can. But if we have reached capacity, you may have to wait for the next available time slot.

What if I miss my timeslot?

We will do our best to fit you in if we can, but if we have reached capacity for the timeslot when you arrive, you will have to wait for the next available timeslot.

I've changed my plans. Can I swap my ticket or get a refund?

No, all our tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Will I get a refund if the site closes on the day I've booked for?

Yes, you will be automatically refunded.

I haven't received my confirmation email.
