We have lots of information here to help you plan your visit in 2021.
We have spent a long time organising a safe environment with many measures in place to stop the spread of COVID-19, this includes asking all visitors to wear a mask unless you are exempt, in which case please let our door staff know this on your arrival.
There will be hand sanitizer in the foyer area, please use it on entrance and exit.
If you have any question please email: [email protected]
We also have Virtual Visit page and a variety of projects which include Lucius’ Challenge children’s activities, Interactive contents, upcoming Virtual Events, and our Living History Project, plus updates during this closure.
Opening times are between 10.00 and 16.00 every Saturday until at least the beginning of September.
Also check our Events page for our current outreach projects and events
