Once home to the greatest civilisation in the Universe, Gallifrey remains lost following the devastating events of the Great Time War.
Here at the Gallifrey Museum learn all about the planet and its race of mysterious Time Lords...
Following the invasion of the Daleks, only one Time Lord remains and he is the most mysterious of them all. The Doctor is still out there, travelling the Universe in his ancient TARDIS. He's out there making friends and fighting enemies. And if you're lucky then maybe we will find him...
Please note the Gallifrey Museum isn't actually real; it's part of the brand new adventure at the Doctor Who Experience. To find out more about the Gallifrey Museum click here, watch our video above, or experience it in person at the Doctor Who Experience.
