Contact & Trace details must be provided for every visitors. You can either scan the QR code displayed in the foyer with your mobile, or give your contact details to the member of staff on duty at the entrance.

Entry to the Museum will be by the ramp at the side of the porch, and exit will be down the steps (special arrangements for wheelchairs and buggies). Please be prepared to queue for a few minutes outside if necessary, to help us manage visitor flow safely.

WCs in the Museum will be available, but only one person or household group at a time can enter the Ladies or Gents. There is a simple procedure to show whether WCs are free or occupied, and to prevent queuing for the WCs.

A member of the Museum team will be on duty at the entrance to assist and direct visitors, and maintain Covid safety measures. Staff will be patrolling the galleries at intervals to monitor Covid safety and do extra cleaning.

When the museum re-opens to the public we will accept payment by debit and credit card at the Welcome Desk, as well as online booking via Art Tickets. 

The Museum reserves the right to refuse entry to anyone who refuses to comply.

We hope you enjoy your visit and welcome feedback on your experience to
