Bethlem Museum of the Mind will be closed temporarily to all visitors as of 17:00 on Friday 13 March 2020 until further notice. We will also be suspending our respective events programmes.

We have reached this difficult but important decision based in part on the latest guidance from Government to delay the spread of Coronavirus and the proactive but measured approach South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust are taking to protect patients, carers and staff.

Thank you for your ongoing support, patience and understanding at this challenging time.

We look forward to welcoming you back in due course.

Please check our website for the latest updates.
