Whilst we are all looking forward to having more freedom again, our main concern is to keep you and our staff safe. So, there are some safety measures that we will be continuing to recommend for a while longer:

  • We will continue to monitor visitor numbers to ensure the museum doesn’t get too crowded. 
  • We recommend wearing a face covering inside the museum.
  • Our staff and volunteers are on hand to help and answer any questions.
