SPECIAL EVENT OPENING 11th SEPTEMBER 11:00 – 16:00 (last admission at 15:30)

Visitors are required to adhere to social distancing guidelines.  Hand sanitiser is available and regular cleaning of touch points is carried out.  Adults are to wear a face covering over their mouth and nose unless medical exemptions apply. We have a small amount of masks available, all we ask for is a small donation.

ALL visitors are required to ‘check-in’ via the NHS Track&Trace app or by leaving your details confidentially with the volunteer at reception.

We politely request that visitors refrain from handling any of the artefacts on display as they are generally very old and delicate and, in many cases, on loan to us from various sources.

Regrettably because of the age and size of the building, the museum is not suitable wheelchair users, prams or pushchairs.  It may be unsuitable for those with limited mobility due to the stairs. Prams/pushchairs etc can be left outside but this is at the owner’s risk.  We take no responsibility for items damaged, lost or stolen whilst left unattended.
