About

You’ll find we’ve made a few changes to make sure our visitors and the museum team are kept safe. You can still enjoy our wonderful galleries and we’ll guide you around the exhibits in a one-way system to help everyone with social distancing. Hand sanitizer will be widely available.

Our tea room will be open for take-away drinks and refreshments which can be enjoyed in our new outdoor seating area overlooking Orchard Square.  

We want you to have the best experience possible so we’re also limiting the number of visitors in the building. Please call us in advance to book your visit on 01452 31820. And for more general information please read our latest coronavirus update. ***
