Revised Opening Arrangements
September 2021 (updated 13.09.21)

After a busy and hectic set of summer months, staff holiday commitments and sick leave mean that we are having to change some of our opening arrangements during September.

The first impacted days on 11th and 12th September, passed off OK and our staff and volunteers stepped up and kept us open; the trustees would like to thank them for their efforts. Also, thanks to our visitors for your patience and understanding.

Wednesday 22nd September – The Museum Shop will be closed, and we hope that cash and card admission payments will be possible via the Admission Kiosk; but we will not be undertaking Gift Aid Admissions; normal opening hours 10am until 5pm, with the last admission being at 4pm. We will confirm this arrangement as soon as we can.

On this day we will have the normal display areas open and a normal service in the Museum Café; however please note that our telephone system will only be accepting recorded messages as the Museum Shop will not be accessible.

We are sorry for the inconvenience that these temporary measures will cause and we hope that they will not spoil your visit.

Please be aware that further revisions may also be necessary later in the month, and these will be notified as and when they are finalised; please see below.
