We are open by appointment only on Fridays. Please ring 01924 316285 to book an appointment to view the museum. We are sorry for any inconvenience and we hope to go back to our usual opening hours as soon as possible.
The museum is free to visit; however, we do suggest a donation of £2 to the Mental Health Museum charity to support our mission and activities.
Mental Health Museum,
Motorway drivers should take the M1- turn off at junction 41- and follow signs for Fieldhead Hospital.
Parking for cars at Fieldhead is free but spaces in the car park are limited.
Sat Nav: Ouchthorpe Lane, WF1 3SP
By public transport
From Wakefield Bus Station, use buses towards Pinderfields Hospital or Fieldhead Hospital. From further afield, you can take a train to Wakefield Westgate or Wakefield Kirkgate stations and the museum is an approximately 30 minute walk or a 5 minute taxi ride from either station.
Coach and minibuses
Unfortunately, coaches cannot park on site. We ask coach drivers to drop visitors off outside the main entrance to Fieldhead before parking off-site.
Mini-buses with no more than 16 seats can park on site if they can fit safely in a marked bay. We recommence that you contact the museum to discuss your visit if you wish to visit by coach or mini-bus.
