Visiting the Museum at Burlington House

We Welcome New Research Into Our Collections

Please read our guidelines for research visits to the museum collections.


The ground floor rooms are suitable for wheelchair access. Access to parts of the museum and library collections is limited, but staff assistance is available. There are toilets on the ground floor.

Due to its central location at Burlington House, the Society of Antiquaries is close to a number of cafes and restaurants in Piccadilly, not to mention the refreshments at the Royal Academy. No parking is available on site.
