Is the Museum open?
In line with Government guidance in response to the COVID19 pandemic the Museum is currently closed. We aim to reopen as soon as possible.
Government advice on their ‘Spring Response’ roadmap can be found here.
Once open we hope to welcome visitors 11am-4pm, Fridays to Sundays (building back up to 7-days a week, 10am-5/6pm, as soon as possible).
Pre-booking is required via our bookings page and ticket holders will be asked to choose an arrival timeslot.

Will the new multimedia guides be safe to use?
We’re thrilled to have up to date content available on our brand new multimedia guides- these and their ‘boxfresh’ headphones are cleaned twice, including immediately before being given to visitors. Sanitising wipes are also available if you wish to undertake further cleaning. You are also welcome to bring your own headphones if you prefer; the multimedia guide fits a standard audio jack (only).
How can I enjoy the Museum if I can’t visit?
Please continue to make the most of our Virtual Visit page, our new podcast and new video series on our new YouTube channel as well as our popular social media streams (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram). We’re updating these as frequently as we can so you can enjoy our collection and stories from the comfort of your own home.
How can I support the Museum at this difficult time?
Being a small, self-sufficient, independent Museum, we’ve been hit hard by the current pandemic as have many other businesses. You can visit us, or support in a variety of other ways:
There are no upcoming events at this time.
Open to the public 7 days a week, there’s always something to see at the museum.
