We remain vigilant to the information being provided by Public Health England regading Cornoavirus (COVID-19).

In light of the current government advice in relation to the Coronavirus, we have taken the difficult decision to close the Museum until further notice. This is in the interests of public health and the well being of our staff and volunteers.

Rest assured that activities behind the scenes will continue, to make sure that the Museum is in a good position when it reopens.

Please stay in touch with us and take care.

We have also decided to postpone activities such as talks, meetings of the Dementia Group and coffee mornings until further notice.

If you have purchased a ticket for a talk or walk, it will still be valid when we’re able to safely run them again. If you would like a refund please contact the museum. As our events often sell out quickly, we would suggest keeping your place.

Further advise on Coronavirus is available on the NHS website:

We are continually reviewing this policy – so please keep checking our web site for updates.
