Planning your visit


As Covid restrictions are lifted we want to make sure your visit is as safe and enjoyable as possible so some measures will continue: 

  • Our staff will give visitors extra space and we encourage visitors to respect others’ space.  
  • We support staff and visitors who would like to continue wearing face coverings in the museum, but this is optional.  
  • We will monitor numbers to ensure the museum does not become too crowded. 
  • We will maintain increased cleaning in public areas. 

If you do have symptoms of coronavirus or you have tested positive for Covid19 please do not visit the museum.
