Find Us 

The Museum is a short walk from Waterloo tube/station and Westminster tube. We are located in the grounds of St Thomas’ Hospital (on the corner of Westminster Bridge and Lambeth Palace Road) and you can reach us via the pavement to the hospital car park level.


We have a small cloakroom with hangers and lockers for small bags available for visitor use during your visit.

Due to security restrictions, we regret that we cannot store large bags or suitcases at the Museum during your visit. We recommend using lockers and storage sites in the local area, such as at Waterloo Station for large bags.
