Donating extra tickets

If you’re able to you can donate extra tickets when you book (like bringing your imaginary friends!). We really, really hope you do: opening the Museum with guided tours is the best and safest experience we can offer, but it hugely restricts our capacity; we estimate to around 15% of what was normal. We hope you can be as generous as possible to keep the Museum open until we can welcome visitors in greater numbers once again.
