Staying Safe

We have limited the number of visitors in the museum to ensure we can maintain social distancing. Things might feel a little different, as we’ve put new measures in place to keep everybody safe:

  • In line with government guidelines you’ll be required to wear a face covering everywhere in the museum. Please bring one with you. You will not need to wear one outside.
  • Hand sanitiser is available at the entrance and exit of the museum and in the garden. For your safety, please avoid touching surfaces as much as possible.
  • There is a one-way system in place, throughout the museum when using the facilities.


In line with government guidance we are supporting the Test and Trace programme. This means you will be asked to scan the NHS Covid-19 app QR code or we’ll make a note of your contact details.

To help keep everyone safe, please follow social distancing and government guidance when you visit. And look out for signs while you’re here which will explain any changes to how you can access different parts of the site.

If you’re showing any of the symptoms of coronavirus, or if you’ve been in contact with anyone that has the virus in the last 14 days, please don’t visit.



The toilets, including access and baby changing facilities, are open and cleaned regularly. Please follow signage, maintain social distancing and should there be a queue, wait two metres apart.


Outdoor seating is available in the walled garden.


All payments to be taken by card only
