Unless you need step-free access, the easiest way to reach this gallery is via the Northwest Stairs from the North Foyer. Turn right at the top of these stairs, go through the second entrance on your right, into the Cultural Survival gallery, turn left and continue (west) into the Centre.

From the Main Entrance

Whilst you could make your way via the Lower West Stairs, (or the outside stairs to the North Entrance) to Ground Floor Level, then via the Northwest Stairs to First Floor Level, you may as well use the lift.

Via the Lift

From the Main entrance, continue past Reception, turn right and continue to the wall at the west end of the central space, then move left to locate the West Lift.

Go to First Floor Level, turn left (north) and continue to the top of the Northwest Stairs, in front of you. Turn left and go through the second entrance on your right into the Cultural Survival gallery. Turn left and continue (west) into the Centre.
