We are delighted to be welcoming researchers back to the Museum’s Reading Room.

Our priority continues to be the wellbeing of our visitors and staff. To help ensure a safe and productive experience for our readers we have made some changes to our Reading Room service. This includes introducing a new request form for appointments, a change in opening hours and currently only three researchers in the reading room at any one time.
