Coronavirus FAQs:

Is the Museum open?
In line with Government guidance in response to the COVID19 pandemic the Museum will reopen on Wednesday 02 December.

Government advice on Tier 2 restrictions can be found here.

Once open we’ll be welcoming visitors 11am-4pm, Wednesdays to Sundays.

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:

  1. You can order items from our online shop.
  2. You can book an exclusive private group tour- please contact museumdirector@householdcavalry.co.uk for further information.
  3. You can make a donation- please contact   museumdirector@householdcavalry.co.uk  for further information.
  4. If you can’t support us financially, we’d love you to help us by sharing our online content and encouraging your network of friends and family to do the same.
