We have been following government and museum sector guidelines closely on reopening and are at present preparing the building to be COVID-19 compliant. Our priority is to provide a safe environment for both our visitors and volunteers and as such there will be some changes in the visitor experience such as a queuing system and a one-way route through the exhibitions.
