Cost of living crisis
You don’t need a ‘reason’ to visit us. Our doors are open - we are free for everyone - and our heating is on.
We know that times are difficult for many and we are deeply concerned about the cost-of-living crisis.
Our hope is that our galleries bring you joy, and that the museum is a warm and welcoming place where everyone belongs. We have new facilities for all and we are working on a number of projects that are designed to support our local communities.
You don’t need a ‘reason’ to visit us. Our doors are open – we are free for everyone – and our heating is on.
Please come inside to use our facilities, rest in our seated areas, chat to our team, or just spend time away from the world to wander and wonder. We also run a number of free events and workshops for people of all ages and backgrounds.
