Visit Us Safely!

We're looking forward to welcoming you back to the Museum and wanted to reassure you that there are some changes in place to ensure you have a safe, relaxed and enjoyable visit.
Our opening hours are currently: Wednesday – Sunday, 10am – 5pm, with last entry at 4 pm.
The entire Museum is open, including shop, toilets and lift, so you won't miss out on anything. We also have a selection of drinks and snacks available through our café, which you can enjoy in the garden.
If you are eligible for free admission, please only book a ticket if you are confident you will be able to attend; the Museum has a very limited capacity and relies on admission fees for its survival.
If you are a regular visitor you will notice new signs and markers throughout the Museum. Please take care of yourself and others by keeping a safe distance from other visitors during your visit.
The Museum already has a one-way system in most areas, and we have made some small changes to further ensure social distancing. The route is clearly marked and our team is on hand to assist.
Hand sanitiser is available at the entrance and at key points throughout the building.
Face coverings are required throughout the Museum except in the garden.
We have installed protective screens at till points.
Hand sanitiser is available at the entrance and at a number of points throughout the Museum.
In addition to daily professional cleaning, our staff will be regularly cleaning throughout the day, including disinfecting door handles, surfaces and lift buttons.
We would be grateful if visitors could make payments by card if possible.
We are offering private group visits outside of our normal opening hours. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
Hot and cold drinks and snacks are available to be enjoyed in the garden.
