Ticketing Information

We recommend booking a ticket in advance of your visit to avoid missing out on the day.

Please note that the Beams closes 60 minutes after the last available time slot.

Some of the installations feature extremely dark rooms, strobe lights & loud sounds (up to 98db), so we wouldn’t recommend the exhibition for children aged 6 and under. Younger children are welcome at the discretion of parents and carers, but we recommend the use of ear defenders which will be available for those that require it onsite.
