We Are On Weather Watch Again

Once again we are monitoring the weather situation for this coming weekend (29th February & 1st March 2020) with respect to Storm Jorge, which has already seen a Yellow Weather Warning issued. Our current intention is to open as normal on Saturday and to see how the weather evolves. If for any reason the weather conditions make the site too dangerous, we do reserve the right to close for everyone’s safety. 

Many staff members and volunteers travel significant distances to get to the museum site and the predicted weather might also mean that they may struggle to get to and from the museum.

We plan to monitor the situation in the run up to the weekend and will post further updates with regard to opening again as appropriate. However, if you plan to visit the museum we suggest that you call 01636 707170 to check that we are open, you can also check our Twitter timeline for updates.

Normal winter opening times are 10am to 4pm throughout the autumn and winter. Last admission to the museum itself is 3pm and last admission to the Museum Shop for shoppers is 3.40pm.
