All funds raised from tickets will help us invest back into the charity with more exciting new exhibitions and events, community programmes and workshops for all of our visitors.

One of the first changes will be our new permanent exhibition – England on the World Stage, an interactive display showing the progress of England’s men and women’s teams through the generations,with some exciting new objects joining the Jules Rimet Trophy and 1966 FIFA World Cup Final football.
