Our family friendly café on the lower ground floor offers a £5.05 lunchbox menu for children, and lots of other options (sandwiches, salads, soups, cakes and hot food) for grown ups.

Our rooftop restaurant also offers a child-friendly menu.

High chairs are available both the café and the restaurant.

We don't allow food or drink in the galleries, but please feel free to picnic on the Museum forecourt.
