We are currently closed as part of the National Lockdown but will reopen our Shop from Wednesday 12 April if Government restrictions allow.

Shop opening times will be Wednesday to Friday 11am – 4pm, Saturday 10am – 4pm.

Remember you can also shop at any time through our Online Shop, where we also operate a next day Click & Collect service

We look forward to welcoming you back to the whole Museum as soon as we can from Wednesday 19 May.
