Group Admission prices

Groups of 10 or more receive discounted entry to the Museum:
Adults (groups of 10+): £3.50
For groups of children and young people please see our Learning page

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. 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

Due to the government guidance on social distancing, we are unable to conduct guided tours for groups at the moment.

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 enjoyable as possible by understanding your requirements and catering for your needs.

Make a day of it

The Museum is located inside Ely Cathedral and there is plenty to do in the building to fill a day’s itinerary. Nearby attractions include Ely Museum, Babylon Gallery and Oliver Cromwell’s House (all within walking distance). The Museum is also a 15 minute train ride, or 30 minutes drive from Cambridge, and can easily be combined with a visit to one of Cambridge’s many attractions.

Have a break
Although the museum does not have a café, Ely Cathedral’s Refectory Café is located within the building. The Almonry Restaurant located in the Cathedral grounds is also very close. There are a number of coffee shops and cafés in the city, within 5-10 minute walking distance.
