how we're keeping you Covid secure

Following the lifting of restrictions on Monday 19 July, the museum has eased some of the measures we had in place. However, we have not removed them all and continue to have the following measures in place to help keep you, our staff and volunteers safe:


We have retained our Perspex screen at the front desk, to keep both volunteers and the public safe.

more cleaning and sanitising points

We have always taken pride in keeping our building clean and presentable and now we have taken an even stricter and more detailed approach to our cleaning procedures. This includes, hourly cleaning of touch points and toilets by staff and volunteers and plenty of opportunities for visitors to use hand sanitiser and wash their hands.

volunteer and staff training

Our staff and volunteers have undergone training to improve the knowledge and understanding of our new operating procedures, they are here to help and support you during your visit. Staff and volunteers will continue to use face masks in public areas.

hiring space

Our garden gallery has reopened for hiring and we are operating in line with government guidelines as they change. This means, at present there are no limitations on the number of people who can attend an event in the space and we welcome all bookings. We continue to follow our enhanced cleaning procedures and sanitising the space regularly.
