For the prefect present or souvenir of your visit, don’t miss our Museum Gift Shop. We have lots for younger visitors at ‘pocket money’ prices and more special gifts inspired by our Ancient Egyptian, German Expressionist, Picasso Ceramics and Arts and Crafts galleries.

If you are a rock and fossil collector you will love our large collection of minerals, stone and fossils.

The Museum Café is the perfect place to take a break and recharge during your visit, or simply pop in any time to catch up with friends, family and work colleagues. 

Relax in the heart of the museum at the Museum Cafe or outside on the beautiful butterfly pavement and if you are feeling hungry, we have a wide selection of homemade cakes and tempting lunch options waiting for you!

If you have any special dietary requirements, contact the Museum Cafe by telephone 0116 225 4919 or by email.
