Baby feeding facilities

Need to heat up your baby food or milk? Just let us know, we’ve had to remove our microwave but our staff will be happy to heat it up in the kitchen for you.

We welcome breastfeeding mothers throughout the museum and café, and have a baby feeding room available on the first floor for those wanting a quiet space away from the main museum.

Lunch areas

Bought a packed lunch?
We’ve got a few spaces where you can tuck in to your sarnies, including lots of outside space.

Our main indoor lunch inside is:

  • Under Archimedes

There are a number of tables and chairs available in the area just under our unique Archimedes water feature! Access via the Town Square. Open every day and we’ve put extra cleaning processes in place.

Plus we have lots of space outside, with plenty of picnic table in our grounds and an outdoor marquee.
