Let St John’s Gate capture your imagination

Previously shortlisted for Kids in Museums’ Family Friendly Museum Award, we’re worth exploring!

Visiting us

We’re re-opening!

We are delighted to announce that from Thursday 24th June the Museum galleries will be open for you to explore from 10am to 5pm Thursday – Saturday. Pre-booking is currently required, please visit the Museum’s Eventbrite page for availability and to book. Tickets for the following week will be available from 9am each Friday.  

Our gallery trails have been  refreshed and we have lots of colouring and activity sheets to be enjoyed.

On Wednesdays during school holidays, we offer an exciting programme of family activities including art and craft workshops and regular storytelling sessions. For details, please see the event page on our website. Following the success of our autism-friendly family activities in 2020, we will also be offering sensory friendly events for families with children who need a quieter environment to enjoy the museum.

Toilets and baby-changing facilities are available on site. We aim to make our museum and family activities accessible to everyone, but if you have any questions please contact us: museum@sja.org.uk / 020 7324 4005

We look forward to seeing you soon!
