Ticketing information

Timed entry tickets

When purchasing tickets you will be asked to select a date and session time. Sessions are hourly from 10am. Limited numbers can enter during each session. This minimises or negates queues and offers an enhanced viewing experience once inside the exhibition.  The Gallery closes 1 hour after the last session.
