Planning your visit


As Covid restrictions are lifted we want to make sure your visit is as safe and enjoyable as possible so some measures will continue: 

  • Our staff will give visitors extra space and we encourage visitors to respect others’ space.  
  • We support staff and visitors who would like to continue wearing face coverings in the museum, but this is optional.
  • We will monitor numbers to ensure the museum does not become too crowded.
  • We will maintain increased cleaning in public areas.

If you do have symptoms of coronavirus or you have tested positive for Covid-19, please do not visit the museum.

Opening hours

Monday - Friday: 10am - 5pm
Saturday: 11am - 4pm
Sunday: CLOSED 

Our cafe The Victorian Pantry is also open Monday - Saturday.
