Staying safe

We are doing everything we can to help keep our visitors and staff safe.

Masks / face coverings

We encourage you to still wear a mask or face covering inside the Museum, unless you are exempt.

Our staff and volunteers wear masks or face coverings unless they are exempt. If you see a staff member wearing a mask-exempt badge please give them more space.

Hand sanitiser and cleaning

There is hand sanitiser available throughout the Museum. Please feel free to wash or sanitise your hands regularly.

We thoroughly clean once a day and staff regularly wipe down high touch points such as door handles.

Visiting at quieter times

If you can, please try to visit us Tuesday to Friday, when it is quieter. Our busiest times are weekends, between 11am and 3pm.

Moving through the Museum

We are operating a one-way route through the Museum, which is easy to follow. Please follow signage.

Please respect other visitors and our staff by keeping your distance throughout your visit.


We prefer contactless and card payments. We can accept cash if you cannot by via card or contactless. 

If you feel unwell

Please do not visit if you feel unwell or have Covid-19 symptoms.
