To ensure the safety of staff and visitors we have introduced revised opening times and pre-booking for all museums. Please note that to guarantee admission, places must be booked in advance.
The Period House is currently closed because its narrow staircase and small rooms don’t leave a lot of space for social distancing.
To pre-book places please ring from Tuesday to Saturday on 01244 972197.
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday,
10.30am – 1pm and 2.30pm – 5.00pm
Closed from 1.00pm till 2.30pm. (Saturdays 1.00pm till 2.00pm)
Last admission at 4.15pm.
Opening times and booking procedures may change at short notice, please check this website before planning a visit.
If you need any assistance ahead of your visit, please ring us on the number above or email us and we will be happy to help. Please do not email us to pre-book unless you need assistance and are unable to ring us.

To help make your visit as safe and enjoyable as possible, please read the following before visiting.
Our priority for reopening our museums is to safeguard the safety of staff and visitors. We have complied with the government’s guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19 and are following the FIVE STEPS TO SAFER WORKING TOGETHER.
These are some of the measures that we have put in place to protect your safety:
To maintain social distancing, we are reducing the number of visitors at our museums and operating one-way systems.
Personal protection and face coverings
As of 8 August 2020 you must by law now wear a face covering in museums.
For further information about face coverings and exemptions please see information on the Gov.uk website.
Hand sanitiser stations are available at all museums and can be used at regular intervals at exits, entrances, and in gallery spaces.
If you or anyone you live with is not feeling well, please postpone your visit and come and see us another time.
Although we have made some changes to how we operate, staff are working hard at all museums to ensure that you have a memorable and safe experience.
This is what you can expect when visiting us:
