The museum is open!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we were closed for 5 months. We’ve launched an emergency appeal as we’re dependent on our admission income and have limited cash reserves. You can donate by clicking here.
We recommend pre-booking. Please see our Visitor Information page for our new opening times and booking information.
