Our reopening – Coronavirus update 17 March 2020

The Museum and gardens are currently closed.

We recently announced that the Museum plans to reopen in September.

Since then the situation with coronavirus has changed rapidly, we are continuing to closely monitor the situation and any impact it may have on the reopening. Protecting the health and wellbeing of our staff, volunteers, visitors and partners remains our priority. Whilst our site remains closed for the redevelopment and our outreach programme is suspended, our work continues and our digital channels are open to keep everyone up to date.

We will update this message as the situation changes.

Our staff are mainly working remotely. Office hours are 9am – 5pm. For enquiries please email
