To make the most of these holidays we’ve extended our trading hours, with many of our properties now opening for the entire school holiday period.

And if you’re looking for a bite to eat there are options aplenty at our beautiful venues.

We also have a great variety of school holiday programs and workshops taking place across our museums - book now
