Regrettably the Museum cannot be sure that it will open on April 1 due to staff illness – two members of Staff have Covid.

As a result our online booking system is not yet live. When we switch it on the first date possible to book in advance will likely be April 11th.

We hope to open as soon as possible the during the week before, availability of staff permitting.

It is advisable to check our social media accounts and website first to see whether we will be open on the day.

Please do not call the Museum – check Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and the website first.
