The Museum is now closed for the season, and will re-open on Monday 23rd March 2015. However work goes on all winter with new exhibitions, maintenance and spring cleaning.
The Resource Centre remains open all year apart from the Christmas break - further information on our archives can be seen on their page.
The Museum is run by an independent charitable trust, and its operations are not funded by national nor local authority. It therefore has to make a charge for admission and services.
Admission to the Museum in 2014 is £2.50 for adults, £1 for children and £2.00 for concessions (£6.00 for a family ticket covering two adults and up to four children).
The Museum galleries are open Monday to Saturday in season, 10.30am to 5.00pm (4.00pm in October). This year the Museum will close on Saturday November 1st, at the end of half-term.
The Resource Centre is open Monday to Thursday 10.00am to 12.00 noon and until 3.00pm on Wednesdays, except for the Christmas period. Other times can be arranged by appointment.
