We're good to goWe’re really excited to re-open our doors this summer, but are doing so in line with the latest government guidelines to ensure we are Covid-secure.

Among other temporary measures, we’ve introduced a booking system to help manage the number of guests we have visiting at any one time, which allows you to choose a date and arrival time.

Please be aware that while we’ll do our best to let everyone in at the time slots they choose, if we become too busy, we may ask visitors to queue until we can safely let everyone inside.

Help us to keep to time by arriving at your chosen arrival time, and keeping your visit to 90 minutes. There is no need to pay in advance as all payments can be made at our reception desk upon arrival.

Sadly at this time, due to the layout of our museum and to ensure all of our visitors remain socially distanced, wheelchairs and pushchairs cannot be accommodated. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Walk-ins available if not up to full capacity.
