About our group booking portal

Before you get started

Our group booking portal allows you to book online, including admission to the museum and all your activities.

Formal education groups, home educators, and other youth and adults groups, as well as community organisations, can now check availability, plan, and book visits online using our group booking portal.

If your booking has under 15 people, please contact us.

We are currently booking for education groups through to 20 December 2024. If you are looking to visit after this date sign up to our mailing list to be the first to know.

To complete your online group booking, you will need:
