YOUR SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY
YOUR SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY
We have made a number of changes to ensure your visit is safe and enjoyable. All of these new measures are constantly monitored and updated in line with government guidance.
We have limited our daily capacity, to give you even more space to explore the museum. We recommend that you pre-book a timed-ticket before you arrive.
For full details on all the changes we’ve made see our FAQs.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Help Us Keep You Safe
Book in advance
We will be limiting the number of visitors to each of our museums so that physical distancing can be observed. We recommend that visitors book a time slot in advance for entry and it is possible that queuing will be required to enter the busier parts of our museums.
We will be very grateful for your patience and understanding where this is required.
Help us to keep you safe by adhering to the government recommendations on physical distancing. Where possible, please keep 2m apart from other visitors who are not in your household or support bubble.
We strongly recommend that visitors have masks with them, and advise that these should be worn if possible, especially in the busier areas of our museums as well as in areas where distancing is more difficult, such as toilets.
Extra safety measures
Hand washing/hand sanitising points will be set up throughout the museum to ensure visitors can wash and sanitise their hands regularly.
We will be increasing the amount of cleaning that we do, especially in busy visitor areas, with special attention to stair handrails, doors, lifts, toilets areas, and any interactive gallery points.
