The Shop at Petersfield Museum is situated just inside the main entrance to the Museum and is accessible without buying a ticket. There is a wide range of exciting items for sale, including books, prints, jewellery, scarves and toys. Find out more information here.


There is one accessible parking space at the front of the Museum which is reserved for visitors with mobility issues. Unfortunately, this space cannot be booked in advance.

The Courtyard Café

The Courtyard Café is situated in the Museum Courtyard. The Café is open to everyone, not just museum visitors. Access to the Courtyard Café is through the gate on the left side of the Museum.


Photography is permitted throughout the Museum, but only for personal use and not commercial. We ask that no flash is used to help protect the delicate nature of some of our collection.
