No flash photography is permitted.

Tours are not suitable for most under-14s.

Only guide dogs are allowed

Accessibility

There is a ramp into the building, disabled toilets facilities, a sound loop in the Egyptian Hall and lift access to all floors. However, much of the art collection is located on stairs so it may be difficult to view the whole collection.
