Research & Education

For 2023 the Library and Archives are open by appointment only on a Friday and Saturday. Please contact us for an appointment. Click here to visit our archives page. Due to COVID we have a backlog of pre booked requests which we are honouring on other days through the season.

The Museum has identifed its education partners and is not currently looking for others.


Volunteers, Interns, and Student Placements

Regrettably we cannot currently offer placements for Students, interns, or volunteers.


Workshops & Events

The Museum does not accept events or proposals for workshops. We do not produce events. The Museum can offer no space for events and workshops.


‘Partnering’ on Projects

Project ideas. Submissions for these are closed indefinitely.

Increasingly the Museum is contacted to ‘partner’ on projects, and to assist with National Portfolio funding rounds [ACE]. The Museum has already identified partners on projects and we work several years in advance.

We regret we are unable to partner with you.


Filming – professional and broadcast

Contact us for our 2023 rate card. We cannot accommodate requests during visitor hours, April-November 10:00-18:00. Please note that the National Trust own the land in the harbour and it is a pre requisite for all filming that you have the appropriate permissions in place and are licensed for this before contacting us should you want to include external shots of the Museum. There is no parking at the Museum for film crew, no green room, nor wardrobe facilities. We have extremely compact premises.
