Visiting Information

Admission into MAD

  • We ask you to please postpone your visit if you or anyone else at home have been recently experiencing symptoms of COVID19, have tested positive, or have been asked to self isolate.
  • As per the latest Government guidelines, masks are now optional but advised in crowded and small spaces.

Inside MAD

  • We have replaced all of the push buttons used to operate the exhibits with motion activated equivalents. Simply wave your hand in front of the button, when it changes colour from blue to green, you’ve activated the exhibit. This way, you shouldn’t need to touch anything at all on your way around the museum.
  • The average visiting time is approximately 1 – 1.5 hours. Due to the COVID situation, when tickets are not pre-booked we can only admit customers who are waiting into the museum when it is safe to do so, in terms of the numbers of people already present. Therefore, we would greatly appreciate it if you could please keep an eye on the time that you have already spent in MAD and try to keep your visit to a reasonable length. This will allow everyone, including those waiting to be admitted, to enjoy the museum. If a situation arises where the museum is deemed to be at risk of over crowding, we may ask you to restrict the length of your visit. Thank you for understanding.
  • We have foot operated hand sanitiser stations and other sanitisers at various locations around the museum. Please use them, particularly upon entry to MAD.
  • Please be considerate of other visitors who may be making their way around at a different pace to you. Should you need to overtake somebody, please try to respect social distancing guidelines as much you possibly can.
  • There are toilets available for use in the museum.
Pre-booked tickets only required for Warwickshire School holidays. Pay on the day any other time.Tickets
