Construction Works Information


Due to construction works taking place, as we enter the next exciting phase of our Discovery Point Transformed Project, there may be noise disruption during your visit. We have reduced our admissions prices to reflect the impact this may have on your visit


We will be closed on 25-26th November, 2021 due to construction works.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause

There is no need to pre-book* tickets and we are not operating a timed entry system. Tickets can be purchased on the day on arrival at Discovery Point or our sister museum Verdant Works.
