The museum's management committee, stewards and other volunteers have been
working hard to ensure that the museum complies with all government
directives, and that your visit will be as safe as it possibly could be. All
surfaces likely to be touched by visitors and staff will be regularly
sanitized, a one-way system has been installed similar to that found in many
shops, and 2-metre social distancing will be enforced. Please also note that
the museum will open 30 minutes later than usual, and close 30 minutes
When you enter the museum a volunteer steward will greet you and provide all
the information you will need for your visit, while others will be on hand
to make sure everything runs smoothly. However, there are a few things you
need to know in advance.
1. It is essential that you wear a face mask at all times.
2. No more
than one household, or one independent person, may be present in a room at
any one time. A household can consist of up to four people who normally live
together. If the household is larger than four, it must divide into smaller
groups.3. You must complete a form (provided) giving your name and
contact details, or those of your group, in order to satisfy the government
'Track and Trace' requirements. The form will be retained securely and will
be destroyed after 21 days if the information is not required.4. If
there are children in your group, please be aware that objects (toys, books,
clothes, etc.) in the children's room, if touched, need to be sanitized or
quarantined for 48 hours. This is probably the most difficult and most
undesirable of the regulations, so please do your bit to help us as best you
can.5. The museum's toilet facilities will not be available to visitors.
6. For donations to the museum, and purchases from the shop, contactless
payment is preferred but not essential.
We sincerely hope that this will not put you off visiting the museum. You
can be assured of a specially warm welcome!
