Museum closed on Sat 27 Nov due to weather

Unfortunately, due to the weather conditions we’ve had to take the reluctant decision to close the Museum on Sat 27 Nov.

This means that the Museum is closed for general admission. Santa Hunts for Sat 27 Nov are aslo cancelled.

This isn’t a decision that we’ve taken lightly.  However, the safety of our visitors and colleagues is our priority. We’re very sorry and understand that this will be disappointing news for everyone who was looking forward to joining us today. 

Please read the guidance below if you’re affected by our closure:
