In order to protect our visitors, staff and volunteers we have implemented new social distancing and cleaning measures.

Our new one-way route goes up the main staircase to the galleries and exits down the rear stairs and through to our gift shop. We are also managing visitor number capacity to enable us to maintain social distancing at all times. Please keep in your bubble at all times, you will notice each room has/gallery has a blue maximum capacity sticker displayed, this will tell you how many people are permitted in the room at one time.

It is now mandatory for members of the public to wear a face covering when visiting the museum unless they have a valid exemption.

Our ticket numbers are limited to a maximum of 20 people per hour, therefore we encourage you to pre-book to avoid disappointment
