We're Good To Go

First of all, thank you to everyone who has sent us messages of support, donated, bought items from our online shop, read the articles on our website, and commented, liked, and shared our posts on social media over these months of enforced closure.

We are thrilled to announce that starting from Saturday 22 August the museum will reopen to visitors.
We will be opening gradually, starting with 11am – 4pm on Saturdays only from 22 August – 26 September.

We plan to extend the hours and days that we are open over the coming months and will update our website when we do.

Timed tickets

We have introduced timed entry tickets, at 30-minute intervals, to limit the number of people in the building and ensure everyone has enough space to have a safe and enjoyable visit.

Everyone, including those eligible for free admission, must book in advance online or over the phone.

Please arrive as close to the time of your pre-booked entry slot as possible to be guaranteed entry. If you have booked for the 3pm slot, please note that last entry will be at 3.15pm.

Book tickets now

We will not be selling any tickets on the door. You must have a pre-booked ticket in order to visit.
If you are unable to make a booking online, please give us a call and we will process your booking over the phone.

Entrance & exit

Whilst social distancing measures are in place, we will be operating a separate entrance and exit to the museum.

The ENTRANCE is at the back of the house in Lancashire Court.

The EXIT is at the front of the house at 25 Brook Street.

If you are struggling to find the entrance, give us a call or pop your head in at 25 Brook Street where a member of staff will be able to direct you round to the back (please note that this is a narrow corridor and you may have to wait for other visitors to vacate before you can get to the reception desk).

Visitor safety

In order to keep visitors and each other safe, all members of our team will be wearing face coverings. To protect yourselves, our staff and your fellow visitors, we strongly advise that visitors also wear a face covering.

Hand sanitiser will be available from the entrance and several locations across the house.
