Youth groups are always welcome in the Museum, and we’re happy to arrange your visit outside our opening hours to fit with your usual meeting time.

Visits are £3.50 per head (leaders and helpers are free), and include a baking or craft activity led by Museum staff, as well as a chance to explore the Museum.

There’s plenty for you and your family to do at the Museum, including following trails, trying on costumes and playing with Victorian toys and musical instruments.

We have baby changing facilities and are happy to store any buggies and bags whilst you look around. Please do be aware that that there are steps to access the property, and no lifts.
