The independent Design Museum, which receives a contribution from my Department towards educational programmes, charges £6.00 for adult admission. The Wellington Museum at Apsley House, to which grant-in-aid is contributed currently through the Victoria & Albert Museum, charges £4.50 for adult admission. In addition, the Cabinet War Rooms and HMS Belfast, which are entirely self-supporting branches of the Imperial War Museum, charge adults admission at £6.00 and £7.00 respectively. In all cases, concessionary rates and reduced rates for adult groups are available.
