Our reopening – Covid-19 update

The Museum and gardens are currently closed for redevelopment. However our work continues and our digital home is open for you to explore stories, share your experiences, enjoy activities and find out more about the Museum's plans for the future.

Our construction programme and reopening plans have been affected by lockdown. We are planning to reopen in spring 2021 and will announce a reopening date soon.

These are challenging times for everyone. If you can support us by making a donation so we can continue with our vital collecting and programming, thank you.

Our staff are working from home. Office hours are Monday to Friday, 9am–5pm. For enquiries please email
