THE MUSEUM IS CURRENTLY CLOSED DUE TO COVID-19.

We have no plans to reopen at present, because of the ongoing government advice on social distancing, and we are prioritising access to the building for students.

We are doing everything we can to plan and hope to welcome visitors back at some point in 2021. Please watch this space where future announcements will be made.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Museum soon.
