About this event

From Ancient Egypt to modern China, we are the only museum in the North of England devoted entirely to the art and archaeology of the great cultures of Northern Africa and Asia.

Tickets are currently free and you are able to enjoy up to 2 hours visiting the stunning collections and exhibitions.

When selecting your ticket please choose a ticket for all members of your party including under 5's keeping current COVID restrictions in mind. If you are in an area where the new variant of Covid is spreading, Government advice says “you should avoid travelling in and out of affected areas unless it is essential". A list of areas this applies to can be found on the Government coronavirus restrictions website.

More information about how to find us and what you can see on your visit can be found by visiting the Oriental Museum homepage
