We welcome assistance dogs onto our sites.
Where possible please bring a relevant identification book for assistance dogs when arriving on site. Identification types include - Assistance Dogs International (ADI), Assistance Dogs UK (ADUK) or the International Guide Dog Federation (IGDF).
Owing to the nature of our sites, if you have multiple assistance dogs within your group please contact us via 020 7091 3067 or contact us to let us know in advance of your visit.
Owners are expected to take responsibility for their assistance dog throughout their visit. Whilst onsite your assistance dog should remain under your care and control, remaining on a lead or within an appropriate carrier. We also ask that all assistance dogs are visibly identifiable with a harness or badge, where possible.
Water bowls can be provided at the Visitor Centre.
Assistance animals other than dogs
Owing to the nature of our different sites, we need to assess the needs and health and safety of the visitor and their assistance animal. We also need to take into consideration other visitors on site and the actual collections being exhibited in our museums, before assistance animals (other than dogs) can be admitted.
Please contact us via 020 7091 3067 or contact us in advance of your visit so we can make this assessment in preparation of your visit. Otherwise, you may be required to wait while an assessment is made.
