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.

Our interactives will not be operating in the displays but you will still be able to access the audios and videos in the gallery using your own mobile device and phones. More about this and how to download the QR code readers will be available on our website and Facebook page nearer our opening.

These changes will allow us to ensure that the Heritage Centre remains a safe, friendly and informative place for everyone.
