Covid-19 Statement



Non-steam Sundays [Free Entry] is a free flow system, self guided around the Museum. You will need to carry out track and trace at the main entrance either by scanning the QR code with the NHS App or signing in as per the instructions. Masks must be worn within the Museum buildings, as directed on signage. 


Steam Events - Entry by advance ticket sales only. Tickets available through our website. These must be produced in either hard copy or shown on a mobile device to front of house staff at entrance. You will still be required to conduct track and trace on entry as guided. 




The Cafe will be open for both non-steam and steam events. For Non-steam, it is self service with an honesty payment system. Visitors will require change in order to pay, a volunteer may be available to help. We have a Nescafe & Go machine serving a variety of hot drinks, we also have a selection of soft drinks, snacks and crisps available for sale. No homemade cake will be available at Non-steam Events. 


Steam Events the cafe will run a table only service (unless rules on this change). You will be shown to a table where your order will be taken by one of our volunteers. Your food/drinks will be served to you. You must wear a mask until seated and if you get up to use the toilets or leave your table. Please be patient with our volunteers as they adjust to this way of working.

Hand Sanitiser


Hand sanitiser stations are available at various locations around the Museum. Including:


  • Main Entrance

Social Distancing

Visitors are asked to approach the entrance desk one group at a time, remaining outside the building and keeping social distance between other visitors while waiting. Please be patient with our volunteers who are adjusting to this way of working. We ask you to maintain social distancing between other groups/visitors throughout the Museum. Some of our buildings are quite small so we ask if they are full for you to kindly wait until it is clear enough to enter. Please be patient.


Please note it is mandatory for the use of face coverings in Museum and other public indoor spaces. Signs will prompt you on entry, the Museum has a limited number of masks available for those that have forgotten to bring them.

Track & Trace

On entry to the Museum or Cafe you are required to sign in for Track & Trace. This can be done by scanning the QR code using the NHS App or by signing in following the instructions on site.
