The museum is currently going through a change in staffing structure and as a result we have reduced administrative capacity and limited staffing availability.

Please remember to check the ‘Visit us’ page for details of our current opening hours and follow us on Twitter and Facebook to be kept updated with our plans.

Please note that the museum will be closed on Wednesdays until further notice.

Many thanks,

The MHM team

The Mental Health Museum is a unique museum in the heart of the Fieldhead site in Wakefield. It is run by South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

The museum houses a remarkable collection of mental health related objects that span the history of mental health care from the early 19th century through to the present day.

The museum is going through a fantastic and exciting programme of development and is changing as we speak.

Please explore our website for more information about the museum and the work that we do.

Visit our  Facebook page to find out more.

The Museum is supporting the I love Museums 2015  campaign which is led by the National Museum Directors’ Council and celebrates the work of museums around the country.
