Group Visits & Event Hire

Swindon Museum and Art Gallery is closed to the public for the foreseeable future.  This will be reviewed in accordance with ongoing Government advice.


We offer a range of group visits and event hire to meet your requirements. Whether your group has a special area of interest, wishes to explore a particular gallery, get an overview of our collection or just hire us for an event we can help.

We can accommodate group visits out of public opening hours when booked in advance. These sessions will be held on a Monday during the day, or as evening visits.  For an additional charge, groups can book an engaging, informative guided tour of our collection from a member of our curatorial team (subject to availability).

Group Visit in the Art Gallery


Visits of 15 people+ or school groups during opening hours that have not booked in advance will only be admitted at the discretion of the management. We reserve the right to refuse admission where we believe there is a safety or capacity risk.

Although entry to the Museum and Art Gallery is currently free, pre-booked group visits will incur a charge.  If you wish to book a group visit to the Museum & Art Gallery, please email us at

Offsite Talks

We can offer a lecture service for groups unable to visit the museum. A member of the curatorial team can deliver an illustrated talk on the museum and its collection (subject to availability). Charges will apply for this service.

Event Hire

The Art Gallery is available for event hire.  Please email us at for more information.
