ITMA is open to the public. No appointment is necessary.

A visit is naturally the best option to fully benefit from our collections and information resources. An appointment is not necessary, unless you have special requirements, are part of a small group, or wish to talk to a particular member of staff. In these cases it is advisable to phone before travelling.
