Urbis explores Urban culture and the cities of today and tomorrow through four floors of exhibitions about city life. Our exhibition programme features international large-scale exhibitions offering unique insights into the dynamic culture of the modern city, with innovative explorations of design, architecture, graffiti, music and the urban environment.

Immerse your senses in the sights, sounds and feelings of arriving in a bustling, big city for the first time. Why do people move to cities? Compare your own experiences with those of immigrants and inhabitants, commuters and workers, people looking for pleasure and people looking to find themselves. Find out how identity becomes a moveable feast in the city. You can be what you like or who you like in your search for fame, wealth, power or love.

Featuring exhibits including International Design Magazine's Gold Medal Winner for Best Interactive Exhibit, Imagining The City, our top three floors sample life in cities from Singapore to Los Angeles.

Open Tuesday - Sunday and Bank Holidays.
