Covid- 19 Visitor Guidelines

Update 03/07

Measures are being put in place ahead of our planned re-opening on 25 July

  • we are changing our opening times on a temporary basis to Thurs-Sun 11am to 4pm. This is so that we have plenty of time to thoroughly clean the museum each week
  • staff are being trainned in new protocols to ensure everyone has a fun and safe time
  • visitors will be required, as part of the NHS system of tracing, to give their contact details. These will be kept securely and detroyed after 21 days
  • numbers of visitors will be regulated and visitors may have to queue
  • hand sanitisers are being installed in the reception area for use before and after you enter the museum
  • signage is going up throughout the building reminding visitors of social distancing requirements and setting out the number of visitors permitted in each space at one time
  • interactive elements have been removed for visitor safety but we're working hard to put the same content online for you to enjoy
  • only one toilet will be available to visitors and it will be cleaned after use
  • a limited range of items will be available in the shop. Items touched by visitors but not purchased will be quarantined for 72 hours
  • regular cleaning regimes are being introduced throughout the day
