Changes due to preventative COVID-19 measures directed by the government include:

*Credit/debit card payments only

* Visitors must provide their contact details as required by disease detectives

*Visitors showing signs of being unwell may be refused entry. Please stay home if you are feeling unwell as per COVID-19 guidelines


*A maximum of 50 visitors within the Museum, with maximum gallery numbers posted at each doorway

*Social distancing of 1.5m will be enforced within the galleries

*Please follow the queue and viewing markers, as well as the one way route signposted in some galleries

*As collection items cannot be disinfected in a ‘normal’ cleaning setting, for their longevity and the safety of everyone, visitors are to refrain from touching objects on display

*Though our theatrette and interactives are closed for now, video content such as the short version of ‘This Eden’ and other exhibition material will be available from our website from 5 June.

*Extra cleaning schedules have been introduced to protect our visitors, volunteers and staff

Thank you for observing the COVID-19 measures within the Museum which will help to keep us safe if we all follow them together

We look forward to seeing you soon!
