Book Now: Natural History Museum, Science Museum and V&A All Reopening

The ‘Big Three’ will all be back in action from August, as follows:

Natural History Museum: 5 August

V&A: 6 August (lower sections, with further galleries opening 27 August.

Science Museum: 19 August

Importantly, entry is free but tickets need to be pre-booked via the museums’ websites. Needless to say, the three venues will all have social distancing measures in place, and a raft of other precautions to keep you and your family as safe as possible.

Cafes will be open at all three museums. Both the Natural History Museum and the V&A has large outdoor spaces to explore as well as their famous galleries.

Welcome back to a trio of treasure houses, who are as much friends as museums.
