What have you done to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19?

We have made a number of changes and improvements to how we operate to ensure the safety of visitors and staff. This includes:

  • reducing the amount of touch points on site
  • introducing one ways systems on site where required
  • an enhanced cleaning regime throughout the museums
  • where appropriate staff will wear PPE such as face masks or gloves
  • signage has been updated to remind visitors and staff to wash their hands
  • hygiene screens have been added to counters and at till points
  • new hand sanitiser points have been installed around the museums
  • social distancing markers are in place
  • pre-booking has been introduced with hourly timed admission windows to limit on-site capacity
  • contactless payments are encouraged
  • access to indoor spaces has been assessed and we have adjusted entry to some exhibits
  • all of our staff have been trained in our new policies and protocols

We are following UK Government guidelines and may be amending these measures as and when the guidelines change.

Do I need to wear a facemask?

Face coverings are currently mandatory in indoor public spaces, including museums & galleries. Whilst our social distancing measures remain robust across all our sites, we ask all visitors to wear a face covering whilst in any of our retail, front of house areas and all internal museum and exhibit spaces. The wearing of face coverings in any of our outdoor museum spaces is not mandatory but down to individual choice.

What if I don’t feel well?

To ensure the safety and wellbeing of all visitors and staff we respectfully ask you to remain at home if you, or any member of your party, is feeling unwell.  If we believe that you are displaying symptoms of COVID 19 on site we will require you to leave and return home.

Will the toilets be open?

Yes, all of our toilets will be open. We have introduced an enhanced cleaning regime and installed hand gel stations on entry and exit.

I can’t book for the date I want to visit?

We’re releasing timed admission slots in date blocks, usually two weeks at a time. If the date you want to visit is a long way ahead we suggest you keep checking the booking diary. As there is limited capacity we may have sold out of popular slots such as weekends so you may need to be flexible with the dates you can visit.
