Visiting the Museum

We’ve made a few changes to ensure you can enjoy your visit safely:

  • There will be regular cleaning of key touch points throughout the galleries during the day.
  • There will be hand sanitiser at the entrance to the building. All visitors will be asked to clean their hands on arrival.
  • All visitors will be asked for their contact details to support the government’s ‘Test, Trace and Protect’ programme.
  • We ask that all visitors follow social distancing guidelines, keep a 2m distance and wear facemasks unless exempt.
  • There will be a limit on numbers in the galleries so that social distancing will be possible for all our visitors.
  • We have introduced a one-way system throughout the galleries. Look out for the floor signs for directions.
  • For families, there will be a new children’s trail to help guide younger visitors (and their accompanying adults) during their visit.
  • Admission to the museum and archives is free. Donations welcome.

Courtyard Café

  • There will be a new seating layout and menu in the Courtyard Café, but the same great service and location as ever!
  • Let’s hope for a sunny few months  – you can dine outside if you wish.

Toilets

  • Toilet facilities will be available for visitors to the museum, the archives and the cafe. Please ask for the key at the reception desk.

Shop

  • The shop will be open so you can still purchase the usual range of great gifts, cards and books.
  • We encourage the use of contactless payment and ask all shop customers to respect social distancing guidelines.
