Groups and tours

The museum welcomes enquiries from groups.

You can manage your own group visit, or we can provide a guide to help interpret the displays. Groups requiring a guided tour of the museum should ideally be limited to about 20 people due to space constraints within the galleries, but larger groups can be accommodated by splitting the group up.

The museum is wheelchair accessible and coach parking is available outside the museum on Argyle Street.
