Exhibitions at The National Library will be reopening for pre-booked slots from Monday 19th of July and we are very much looking forward to welcoming you back to the building.
Your safety and the safety of our staff is our highest priority to reduce the risk of the spread of Covid-19. We have had to change a few things, which may mean your experience is slightly different to what we normally offer but we hope you will enjoy:

You can book your morning or afternoon session using our Exhibitions booking system.
