Covid-19 Information

When we re-open, we will be operating in line with Government guidelines and Public Health guidance. We are registered with the Visit Britain Good To Go scheme.

Before Your Visit
  • Book your tickets for your chosen visit date online in advance to guarantee your place
  • As we are minimising cash handling on-site, be prepared to make payments using a ‘contactless’ bank card where possible
  • Be aware that some activities, talks, tours, and interactives will have been suspended where social distancing cannot be guaranteed
  • Please postpone your visit if you are exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19 or if you are feeling unwell
During Your Visit
  • Please adhere to the rule of six on your visit
  • Face coverings are required to be worn inside the Schoolroom. Exclusions apply
  • Please use the hand sanitiser stations on arrival and as you make your way around the Schoolroom
  • We have installed new hygiene screens at many of our service counters.
  • We have trained our staff in safe working practices, they will be wearing face coverings and may wear additional PPE if they wish
  • They will be on hand to support social distancing and promote safer use of the Museum
  • Please follow their guidance, and feel free to ask them any questions you may have
  • Please observe social distancing at all times when navigating the Schoolroom
  • Look out for new signage and routing which aims to ensure all visitors can respect the personal space of others
  • We have put a one-way system in place around the Schoolroom to ensure social distancing is easier to manage
