Opening Hours:

The museum is open from 10am – 4pm, seven days a week, including Bank Holidays, with seasonal closures at Christmas/New Year period. During special events, the opening hours may be extended or varied.  There are also occasional closures as circumstances dictate, such as when maintenance issues arise, or when the museum is being used for filming.  When this occurs, we try to give as much notice as possible via social media.  Prospective visitors, particularly those contemplating long journeys, are welcome to call the office to confirm.

War and Peace may we also suggest combining your visit to Whittington with one to the National Memorial Arboretum, a few minutes drive away at Alrewas? There you can stroll around the 150 acre site which is being planted as a living tribute to the peoples of the twentieth century. Reflect on our history with the numerous Veterans Plots and enjoy a period of quiet contemplation in the Millennium Chapel of Peace and Forgiveness where two minutes silence, last post and reveille is played and observed at 11 o’clock on every day of the year.
