Forthcoming changes to opening hours
From the 1st November 2012 to the 31st March 2013 the museum will be open Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm. So it will close an hour earlier than it does currently.
From the 1st April to the 31st October 2013 we will be open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm. Thus for the first time we will be regularly open on a Monday, whereas previously it was just on Bank Holidays.
The changes give us the opportunity to run some special events on a Sunday in the future. Visitors will now have the option to visit us on a Monday, the traditional day when many heritage sites are closed. The decision to close earlier during the winter months was partly taken as often there is nobody around that late in the afternoon. Conversely the summer and the school holidays are the busiest times for us so we are trying to open when people want to visit us.
We hope that you find our new extended and seasonal opening hours convenient and we look forward to welcoming you. We are always keen to hear your opinions, so if you have any feedback, then please let us know.
