The museum is reopening - should you wish to visit, you will need to book a ticket. In order to limit the number of people on site and to help with social distancing measures, the tickets will be for allocated time slots. There are also now family days running each THURSDAY in AUGUST - make sure you book via the website.

  • Tickets are only valid for their specified date and time and entry will only be allowed at your given time period. Visitors will be allowed to enjoy the museum at their own pace until the site closes at 5pm.
  • One way systems are set up and are allowing limited numbers of people in specific buildings at once.
  • Newly built toilets will be in use.
  • New covered picnic area to allow comfortable socially distanced picnicking in inclement weather.
