We are now closed for the winter season and will re-open in April 2021. We may be closed but we are still sharing stories on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram.
These notes are to help you plan your visit when we re-open:
Use this 360 Virtual Tour to plan your visit to the museum or to explore the town.
The museum is housed in an old market building with sloping granite floors and some uneven surfaces. Our front door has a set of steps and we have flat access through an entrance on the right side of the building.
We have lift access to all floors and are really happy to answer any accessibility queries you may have. Here is our Easy Read Guide to Visiting and our Sensory Map.If you think visiting our museum may be a little overwhelming then maybe our Sensory Backpack will help.
Please contact us on email@example.com if you have any further questions.
This 5 min audio introduction describes the architecture, layout and gives a brief taste of the exhibitions.
