Petrie Museum

Visit the Petrie Museum

The museum is open Tuesday - Saturday, 1-5pm, and by appointment only to researchers on Mondays.


If you have mobility difficulties please contact us in advance of your visit and we will do our best to help. We may be able to arrange parking for you in the main university quadrangle (off Gower Street, see map). There is a banner over the entrance to the museum, which is located on the first floor of the DMS Watson library. Staff at the security desk just inside the library entrance will be able to direct you to the museum (there are signs). 

There is lift access to the museum on the first floor, and to the toilet for visitors with disabilities on the third floor. Inside the museum visitors must negotiate two steps to reach the second gallery: a wheelchair lift is available. Occasionally on Saturdays in vacation time, or for evening events, lift access may not be possible; please contact us in advance of your visit to check.

Lighting within the museum is less than ideal, and we offer visitors the loan of torches. Seating is available. Large print floorplans, text panel and temporary exhibition information are available at reception.


Photography without flash is allowed, but if you wish to order photographs ask a member of the museum staff when you visit.
