Re-opening Monday 20th July 2020 9.30am – 4pm (last admission 3.30pm)



Following current Government advice, we have taken the difficult decision to close the museum and the cafe to the public from 4pm Tuesday 17 March.

ALL events, visits and forthcoming exhibitions are cancelled with immediate effect. We intend to reschedule ticketed events where possible and will publish future dates as appropriate. Refunds will be offered if future dates are not convenient.

Regrettably closure will be for an indefinite period, however, we will inform people of plans to re-open as soon as we are able.

We would like to thank all of our community for your ongoing support, patience and understanding during this very difficult period.
