The much-loved Museum will be open on Saturdays starting in two weeks time on 22 May.

They will be open each Saturday all the way through to 30 October, where they will be open from 10am until 4pm, with the last admission at 3.30pm.

They have been given the green light to re-open their doors from 17 May, as that is the day that indoor visitor attractions and entertainment will be able to re-open as a part of the Government’s ‘road map’ out of lockdown.

Admission prices are £1 for children and £2 for adults.

Friends of the Museum are eligible for free admission on production of a 2021 Membership card.

There will be no tearoom service until July, where a limited amount of hot and cold drinks and snacks will be offered, which visitors can then enjoy in the Museum garden.

Covid guidelines

Upon entering the venue, keen museum-goers and visitors will have to provide their contact details as part of the NHS Test and Trace scheme.

Face coverings have been made compulsory inside of the Museum.

Social distancing rules must be followed, with a one-way system in operation for both entering and exiting the building.

Hand sanitising stations will be located in ‘all areas’, with an increased cleaning regime.

Staff and volunteers are reminding people to take personal responsibility for managing children who are part of their group, to ensure that they stick to the social distancing rules and maintain good hygiene practice.
