Opening times

Mon, Wed, Sat, 1.30pm – 4.30pm

These are our current opening hours due to COVID restrictions. We hope to increase our opening hours when these restrictions have been further eased.

No booking is required, but we have restricted access to the building to 20 at any one time. Therefore a slight wait may be needed as we take your details for Track and Trace and to allow for the reduced number of visitors to our site.

Once in the building you are welcome to visit all areas of the museum, we only ask that you follow social distancing and the signs around the museum.
