If you'd like to visit The Stained Glass Museum as a group, please contact us advance.
Groups of 10 or more receive discounted entry to the Museum
Concessions £3.00 (seniors and full-time students)
As the main gallery is narrow, in order to protect the collection and enable you to have the best visit possible, we can only accommodate groups of 15 (maximum) at one time. We request that larger groups are split into smaller groups of up to 15. Entrance to the Stained Glass Museum can be staggered, or, if you are combining your visit with another attraction in Ely, such as Ely Cathedral, Ely Museum, or Oliver Cromwell House, groups can be split.
Guided Tours for groups (maximum 15 persons in one group) are available via prior arrangement, and can greatly enhance your visit to the Museum. Please note that additional tour fees apply. We aim to make your visit as easy and as enjoyable as possible by understanding your requirements and catering for your needs.
