Arranging a visit.
Our regular opening times for visitors to view the collection have changed in 2022.
The museum is open every Wednesday from 11-1pm and on the third Sunday of every month from 2-4pm.
In addition we open on other special heritage days, please check out the website and social media for updates.
Bookings for either group or personal visits outside of these times can be arranged, please contact:
If you visit is concerning the library or museum collection specifically 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.
