Delivery and Returns



We aim to dispatch orders between 1-3 working days, however, as some items are stored at individual venues some orders may take longer. Orders are currently being dispatched between Monday and Friday. If you have any queries, please e-mail

UK orders

We use Royal Mail tracked 48 to dispatch most items for delivery, depending on the size and weight of the item. All shipping costs are based on weight of the individual item/s you order.

Once dispatched, most items should take between 2 and 5 working days to be delivered.

Europe and International orders

We use Royal Mail's airmail service to post overseas. This can take from 1 to 4 weeks and costs from £13.00 in Europe and from £24.00 for the rest of the world. As with UK delivery, this will be more for heavier parcels. Please be aware there may be local duty and/or taxes payable on goods delivered outside the UK. National Museums Liverpool are not responsible for paying these charges and they are not included in your payment to us. We will send your parcel with tracking where possible.

Large orders

If you would like to order a large number of items, it may be worth contacting us directly to enquire about shipping costs.



National Museums Liverpool wants you to be happy with your purchase. If you are not totally satisfied with your order, please return it to us. Goods must be returned in the same condition you received them within 45 days of receiving the order. We will issue a refund or replacement at your request.
