Gallery Closures

The Land, Sea and Sky Galleries will undergo significant rewiring and lighting replacement works from 1 December until the end of March 2015.  The work will ensure our galleries remain safe and enjoyable places for our visitors.  The re-opening of the galleries are planned for 7 April 2015 although dates are subject to change and we would advise you to telephone prior to your visit

The Transport Museum's Rail, TITANICa, Road and Car galleries will not be affected and will remain open as normal. 
Tickets bought during this period will be valid for both the Transport and Folk Museums.

We apologise for the necessary closure to the galleries during this time and for any inconvenience caused.
