Visiting with confidence
It’s really important to us that you’re able to visit your museums with confidence. We’re continuing to take steps to keep all our visitors and staff safe.

When you enter

  • Face coverings must be worn during your visit, unless exempt. Thank you for helping keep everyone well 
  • Please use the hand sanitiser stations available
  • Make space for other visitors and staff and keep younger visitors with you during your visit
  • Check-in to support the NHS Test & Trace programme
  • If you are experiencing any symptoms of Covid-19, please don’t visit the gallery

We’re helping you visit safely by

  • Limiting the number of visitors in the gallery
  • Hand sanitiser available throughout the gallery
  • Enhanced cleaning throughout the day
  • Keeping doors open wherever possible to avoid multiple touch points
  • Screens on our shop counter

The closest is the NCP car park opposite the Crucible Theatre. Visitors using the Q Park car park on Charles Street are able to claim 50% off the price of their parking – just ask a member of the team for a discount voucher (this discount is currently unavailable with pre-booked parking spaces). Limited disabled parking spaces are available for blue badge holders in Surrey Street.

Toilets & Baby Change
Ladies toilets are located just outside the entrance to the Gallery – gents toilets are located just inside. Disabled access toilets are available via the Library. Unfortunately there are no baby changing facilities at the Graves Gallery.

Full details of facilities and access at the gallery can be found here.

The Graves Gallery Shop will be open during your visit. A perspex screen has been installed on the shop counter and the shop layout has been reconfigured to support social distancing.
