FREE ADMISSION

We can't wait to welcome you back!

Our Cosford playground is now open daily from 10:00am as are our galleries and exhibitions.

We strongly recommend that all visitors wear a face covering when visiting our galleries, shop and restaurant* unless they were previously exempt from doing so. You will not need to wear one when outside in our green spaces, unless it makes you more comfortable to do so. We would also ask that when in our buildings that our visitors be aware of others around them and where possible maintain a social distance of 1 metre. 

*Except when seated.

Please note: Our Cosford site will be closed to general visitors on Wednesday 29 September for a STEM Festival for local school children. Please do not travel to us, unless you have tickets for this event.

Available for schools, workshops streamed to your classroom
