We are now Open from Wednesdays to Saturdays (closed Sundays to Tuesdays) for six hours between 10 am and 4 pm. Entry will be limited to only six people or a bubble, and we must still ask visitors to sanitise hands, register with the QR code or leave contact details, and wear masks.
Also a family or classroom bubble are welcome to book a special time in order to have a 'private viewing' of all our exhibits and to meet a volunteer to answer any questions they may have. See our Contact Info page HERE.
