Opening Hours

We are open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, and free to visit!

We are closed on weekends, Bank Holidays, and during University closures.

We may be closed for teaching during term time, any changes to our regular opening hours will be listed here.

Don’t forget that group visits must be booked in advance!

The Cole Museum is centred at the heart of a working University building, and we must ask our visitors to be considerate of our staff and researchers working on the upper floors by keeping noise levels to a minimum.

Think of us as a quiet space, like a library.

We also ask that prams, buggies scooters etc are not brought into the museum. These can be left outside the building, or next to the cafe kiosk during times where the cafe is closed.
