The Boundless team will be located at the front of the museum, located to the right after you get admission to the gardens. Make sure you visit us when you arrive to pick up your event packs, including guidebook, prize draw and more.

What time does this event start and end?

Due to the capacity of the museum, we will be only allowing a limited number of members into the museum at any one time. This is to ensure you have the best experience possible. When you select your ticket you will be asked what admission slot you wish to book into. If you arrive outside of your admission slot you may not be able to access the museum.

Can tickets be transferred?

Once you have purchased your event tickets they cannot be transferred as a current member with valid membership card needs to be present. This is because we have a very limited number of tickets and have to ensure the offer benefits Boundless members.

How accessible is the site for people with mobility difficulties?

The museum is wheelchair accessible throughout. There is a wheelchair accessible toilet. The meeting room/archive is on the first floor and unfortunately, not accessible to wheelchair users.

Are dogs allowed on site?

The museum is a dog friendly venue, however please be aware that not all members feel comfortable around dogs and therefore we ask to kindly bear this in mind when bringing them with you.
