Buying Timed Tickets at the Gallery

Where do I buy timed tickets from?
Timed tickets are available from 11.00am when the Gallery opens until 6.00pm, one hour before closing time, from the welcome desk at the ground floor entrance.

Can I buy on the day even if tickets are sold out in advance?
A small number of tickets for each time slot are available when we open each day. If you plan to buy tickets this way, we recommend you aim to arrive early and be prepared that you may be buying tickets for a timeslot later in the day.

Yes, providing we have availability for the date and time slot you wish to purchase.
