Opening & Admissions 2020

Opening & Admissions 2020

We can ONLY guarantee Museum entry if visitors book their tickets in advance, preferably online (Click on this LINK which will take you to our advance booking page), or by telephoning the Museum directly.

Contact the Museum in advance to check availability of last-minute bookings.

In order to make vulnerable people and groups feel even safer returning to the Museum, we have set aside 9am - 10am every Wednesday (beginning 2nd September) as a quiet time specifically for people who fall into this category. However, because places are strictly limited, we require advance booking to secure your place. Please call the Museum on 01803 293975 between 9am and 4pm, Monday to Saturday to reserve a place.

We have been working hard to ensure that the Museum will be safe for visitors and staff when we re-open. We are restricting and monitoring visitor numbers to ensure that we can maintain social distancing and ensure the safety of our visitors. Protective screens have been installed at our ticket desk and in our shop, and we have instigated a one-way system around the Museum in order to help maintain social distancing. Additionally, we will be implementing a rigorous cleaning regime throughout the day. Staff and volunteers who work in the public areas of the Museum will wear face masks or face shields, and we encourage visitors to do likewise.
