Where history
and nature meet

Find Collections, What's on and more

New Admission Policy

29 May 2015

As of 1st June 2015 the museum will charge entry of £2 per person


This move will help us improve the service we offer the public by providing a stable income from our visitors. Your £2.00 will help to cover costs towards the building, the collections, redisplays, employing staff and maintenance of the site. We will also use income to improve the facilities with a lift, new lighting and amenities. Children under the age of 5 are FREE. 

For the museum to continue and offer the excellent range of care, research, teaching, school activities, birthday parties, exhibitions and events we must rely on our visitors to help us out. We will continue to build on our applications for innovative projects through the museum and collections.

Thank you for your support!
