If you're feeling unwell
If you or anyone you live with displays symptoms associated with COVID-19, please do not visit; delay your visit until it is safe to do so.
Your safety is our priority
We have made a few changes that put your safety, as well as the safety of our staff, first. These are some of the additional safety and hygiene measures we have put in place:
Our staff will be continuing to wear face coverings and although it is no longer a requirement we are recommending that visitors also wear face coverings in the museum if possible.
Hand sanitiser stations
Hand sanitiser will be available at the entrance to our museum and at regular intervals, for you to use. You will be asked by our staff to use hand sanitiser on arrival. If you prefer to use your own hand sanitiser please ensure you show it to our staff on arrival.
The frequency of our cleaning throughout our museum has been increased, including toilets and other facilities. Sites will be cleaned thoroughly before opening and at regular intervals during the day. Toilets will be cleaned hourly. We have tried to minimise the need to touch surfaces, however where this is not possible please follow any guidance and signage.
Protection for our staff
Gloves and eye protection have been introduced for our staff when greeting our visitors and carrying out cleaning.
During busier times we may ask you to queue for a short time before entering the site.
A new experience
For your safety and the safety of other visitors, parts of our museum are currently closed to the public; this includes any interactive or handling elements.
We apologise for any disappointment this may cause but we are sure you will appreciate that we must put the safety of our visitors and staff first. We hope to be able to re-open these areas once it is safe to do so.
For more information about the new visit experience please download our visitor information maps
Facilities and amenities
We aim to make access to our museums and gallery enjoyable and welcoming to the widest possible public.
Please be aware that some of our staff may be wearing face masks or eye protection which can impact on their ability to communicate clearly. If you have any issues please ask for further assistance.
