Covid-19 Reopening Measures

  • Be symptom free. If you or anyone you live with have shown symptoms of Coronavirus, do not visit until you have tested negative.
  • Use the NHS Covid-19 App. Everyone aged 16 or older will need to check-in using the NHS Test and Trace App or give their name and contact details.
  • Maintain social distancing. We're limiting the number of tickets available in each time slot so please keep your distance from others around you.
  • Wear a face mask. You must wear your face mask inside the museum, unless exempt. Children under the age of 11 are not required to wear one.
  • Use hand sanitiser. Hand sanitiser stations will be available for you to use at regular intervals.
  • Follow the route. We've created a one-way route around the Museum and put up some handy signs to help you follow it. Keep an eye out for the signs.
