Arranging a Visit
Members of the public are welcome but are asked to be in touch in advance so that suitable arrangements can be made. Most visitors come as a part to see the museum displays, while others come individually to study particular holdings. On selected Sunday afternoons the Society holds open days for which no booking is required. Details of these open days will be posted on this site so please do check back for updates.
Due to the restrictions of the building and the fact that the Museum is run entirely by volunteers, it is not possible to be open at all times. Visits to the museum must be first arranged. Please use the contact form or, if you prefer, the link below, to arrange your visit.
If you would like to arrange a group visit to the Museum, please contact:
Our disabled access arrangements are currently unsatisfactory. A recently commissioned report into future options for our accommodation has identified this as a priority for improvement. Nonetheless we will endeavour to do our best to make the collections as accessible as possible for all.
There are a couple of steps up the the front door. Please be aware that the building is over two floors and there is no wheelchair access to the first floor. The staircase up to the first floor has about twenty steps with one turn. There is a handrail on either side. To access all of the ground floor wheelchair users would have to be able to leave the wheelchair momentarily and partially fold it in order to transfer between the lobby and the largest gallery. If you have any concerns or questions about accessibility, please do contact us before your planned visit.
