Covid 19 Operating Procedure


To ensure we are keeping our visitors and staff safe all visitors will need to purchase a pre-booked ticket for Events, Performances and a free timed-entry ticket for the Museum and Gallery.

There a will be four timed sessions a day. Tickets allow entry for a combined visit to the Museum and Gallery. Each session is 75 minutes long. Tickets for these sessions are bookable from the 1st of June.

Visitors are still able to access the Visitor Centre and Gift Shop without pre-booking.

Your Visit

If you or any of your family group or bubble are showing symptoms of Covid 19 please postpone your visit.

Please have your ticket ready to show a member of staff on arrival, either on your device or a printed copy.

A member of staff will take a digital temperature reading from you on arrival, if your temperature exceeds 38 degrees we would politely ask you to return for a visit at another time.

Please follow distancing guidelines in all areas of the building during your visit. There will be distanced seating at performances and our staff will give you guidance on this when you arrive.

Please ensure that you wear a face mask/covering unless you are exempt.

Our team will be completing regular and enhanced cleaning throughout the day and between all Museum sessions and performances.

There will be a facility to check into NHS Test & Trace should you wish to do so.

Our procedures will be reviewed in line with any changes to government guidance. Please check our website or social media for the latest advice before your visit. If you have any questions, please contact us.
