Please read the following information before your visit

If you're feeling unwell

If you are displaying 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:

Face coverings

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.

Increased cleaning

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.

Your visit

During busier times we may ask you to queue for a short time before entering the site.

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.
