Reopening Safely Autumn 2020

We are due to safely reopen this autumn with a reimagined immersive visitor experience and 11 new galleries showing how people have triumphed over disease – and how we can keep making our world better, together.

We’ll be announcing a specific reopening date and safety measures for visitors via our website and social media channels.
