The museum will now be closed throughout November. We hope to reopen after 2nd December. We ask you to pre-book your visit.

We are committed to keeping you and our team safe during your visit. We have introduced the following measures to achieve this:

  • Limited the number of people in the museum. We ask that you pre-book your visit.
  • Ask you to observe social distancing. We ask that you wear a face covering in the museum.
  • Provided hand sanitisers for your use on entry and throughout the building.
  • Installed a screen at reception and provided face coverings for our team.
  • Ask that you pay by contactless or by card.
  • Introduced a new cleaning regime.
  • Removed interactive exhibits and the contents of our discovery boxes.
  • Trained our staff and volunteers in the new procedures.


The museum continues to welcome 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.
