The museum has a wide ranging programme of exhibitions, talks, walks and workshops for adults. Much of this programme is currently suspended but from 22nd August we are re-opening the museum and offering a programme of guided walks.

The museum welcomes pre-arranged visits by groups outside normal museum opening hours, during the day or in the evening. An introductory talk, either before the visit or when you arrive at the museum, can usually be arranged if requested.

We can also arrange a guided walk as part of your visit to the museum.
