Our bookshop is open to browse, even without an Entry ticket.

Time Out voted our shop as one of their Top Five Children’s Bookshops in London.

The shop stocks a wide range of books, from picturebooks for babies and young children to story books for ages up to 11, including much-loved classics and modern favourites.

You’ll be able to find the stories that have inspired our exhibitions, and that have been written by our visiting authors and illustrators. We also stock a selection of toys, games, wall charts and much more.

You’ll find the shop on the Ground Floor, next to Reception.


You can now add books to your basket when buying your Discover Entry ticket – you’ll be recommended different books depending on what you’re coming to see – and pick them up when you visit.
