Visitor information

We're happy to have a date for reopening in stage 3 of the government's roadmap (from 17 May) and we are getting ready to welcome you back again.

We will confirm opening dates and details nearer the time. You’ll be able to enjoy all your favourite displays again, and we will of course be implementing all of the Covid-safety measures.

Until we reopen, we hope you continue to enjoy exhibition and collections content and activities on our website and social media or by joining our mailing list at

Our continued closure will have an even greater impact on our income - please support us 

Thank you for your loyalty and support - it is hugely appreciated.
