10am-4pm (last entry 3.30pm), free admission on selected Fridays
We are now open on certain Fridays throughout the year and would like to welcome visitors to our Burlington House premises. During these Open Fridays, you will be able to enjoy a visit to the lower ground floor of our London premises and learn about our history, the rooms and collections within.
Visits to our Library take place at 11am, 12 noon, 2pm and 3pm. Lasting 10-15 minutes, the visits provide an opportunity to peep inside the largest antiquarian library in the country, with an outstanding collection amassed over 300 years. Please note, these visits are not guaranteed and take place subject to staff and volunteer availability. These are not bookable in advance; thank you for your understanding.
Open Fridays are part of our Sensing History at the Society of Antiquaries project, which is kindly supported by, National Lottery Heritage Fund, John Murray Charitable Trust, Movement For Good, & Museum Development London.
