Opening Times


The safety of our visitors, volunteers and staff is our number one priority. In light of the most recent government guidance the trustees of the Society took the decision to close the museum as soon as the announcement was made.

The museum will be closed until further notice, please keep watching the website and social media for any further updates.

We look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

This information will be updated as soon as we are able to safely reopen the library space.
