We have decided to maintain social distancing and other covid mitigation measures, including reduced capacity and a one way system in the museum in accordance with industry best practice.  We would recommend that visitors wear a face covering whilst inside the museum.

Unfortunately, it has been necessary to continue with a charge for admission to the museum. If you require the assistance of a carer  when you visit our museum, please contact the office, who will be able to provide them with a free ticket. Entry to the museum for children aged up to 11 years is free providing they are accompanied by at least 1 adult ticket holder.

Our award winning herb garden is open all year round and is free to enter.

Please do not visit the museum if you have any covid symptoms or are self isolating.

Visiting us with children

If you are visiting the museum with children, we have a free mouse hunt. You can download the details before your visit – although copies will be available in the museum.

 

There is plenty to see and do in Lichfield after your visit to Erasmus Darwin House.  Why not try a self-guided tour of Cathedral Close – booklets are available from reception at £4.  When the museum is closed the booklets are available from our honesty box on the in Dr Darwin’s medicine Chest.

 

We look forward to welcoming you to Erasmus Darwin House
