Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery

Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery


Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery is an excellent choice for a great day out for all of the family.

Set in beautiful gardens, Old Tullie House is a 17thC townhouse with a fine classical facade. Inside there are some original architectural features including a Jacobean staircase. The Panelled Room showcases key paintings from the Pre-Raphaelite period.
Why not schedule a lunch stop at the garden restaurant with its wide variety of snacks, refreshments, teas and lunches. We cater for younger visitors with our very own children's menus and facilities.
The museum shop has unique-to-Tullie gift ideas including a specially commissioned range of replica jewellery based on the museum's own Roman collection.
Ramped access, lifts to all main areas, automatic doors, adapted toilets, parking for adapted vehicles and induction loops help to make Tullie House accessible.
