IMPORTANT NOTICE - CHANGE OF OPENING TIMES

FROM 1st NOVEMBER 2021 THE MUSEUM WILL ONLY BE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC ON A SATURDAY FROM 10am to 4pm WITH LAST ENTRY AT 3pm

As we continue our Covid recovery process and bearing in mind the pressures of volunteer recruitment and training it has been decided that the Museum will now enter into restricted winter opening hours until February 2022.

This restricted opening will allow the Museum to enter into a recruitment and training period as well as a display and information assessment that will help to ensure that our Museum will continue to grow in 2022. We would like to sincerely thank all of our wonderful visitors who have helped us in our recovery to date and we all look forward to welcoming new visitors on our Saturday opening days on the run-up to the festive season.


The Museum will also be holding several shopping evenings during December and details of these events along with our festive period shutdown dates will be released later this month. Thank you for your patience and understanding and we apologise if this may cause you any inconvenience.
