The Museum remains free to enter. However, to keep you and our staff safe, we have had to reduce the number of people we can welcome on site at any one time. To manage this, all visitors entering the site will need to have booked a free ticket in advance. Sadly, if you don't book and present a valid ticket, you’ll be turned away. We can make no exceptions. Though entry is timed, you can stay until closing!

Tickets will be released every Wednesday for visits covering the following two weeks on a Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
