The Museum is currently open at slightly reduced hours: Monday & Tuesday 10am-4pm and Sunday 1pm-4pm.

We are currently closed Wed-Sat, apart from for Open Air Theatre performances.

Our Museum Shop & Café and Formal Gardens are FREE ENTRY with a suggested donation of £3.00.

We continue to recommend pre-booking and therefore over the summer, we will continue to release 50% of our daily capacity as pre-booked self-guided visit tickets. These will be released 2 weeks prior on Eventbrite with links via our website What’s On Page.

However, from the 19th July 2021, we will now be accepting walk ups from 1pm-3.30pm Mon, Tues & Sun, but recommend calling ahead for guaranteed entry during busy periods.

Please note: The museum may close early on some Sundays for the Summer Open Air Theatre Programme.
