Visitor Information


Exciting news!

Phase one of the new Butterfly House project at Cumberland House Natural History Museum will be underway from mid-December. This will see the current butterfly house removed and the terrace behind the house brought back to its former glory.

A new ramp will be installed at the same time improving access for everyone to the building.

As the museum cannot be open for these works we are taking this opportunity to carry out essential work to the historic interior.

The museum will re-open April 2017.

April - September: 10.00am - 5.30pm

October - March: 10.00am - 5.00pm
Open Tuesday-Sunday and Bank Holiday Mondays. Closed on Mondays (apart from Bank Holidays).
Last entry to the museum is 30 minutes before closing time.

If you require any information for your visit, please contact us.  


A full range of products are available in our museum shop for all ages, but particularly for young people.

The Museum is free entry to all but young people under 13 need to be accompanied by an older person
