Following the latest change in government guidance, all visitors aged 12 years and older must wear a face covering in the museum and on the trains, unless you are medically exempt. To ensure the wellbeing of visitors and staff, we are monitoring numbers to ensure the museum does not become too crowded.
This remains a difficult time for us. Help us ensure art, culture & heritage continue to make a positive impact in our region. Thank you. Donate now
