We're really excited to announce that we are re-opening to the general public for weekends only from the 17th October 2020.
The museum will only be open to visitors via our online pre-booking system. This will allow us to control and limit the number of people in the museum. It will also eliminate any delays at reception and minimise face-to-face time. It will also allow us to implement contact tracing, should we need to. We can not accept any walk-in visitors.
We are trying to make sure your visit to the museum is as unaffected as possible but there will be a couple of items not available for use. These include the Virtual Reality exhibit (that requires a headset to be worn), and the 'pixel wall' that uses lots of small plastic pieces to make an image. These have been replaced with some surprise hands-free interactives that we know you'll love!
We have increased the number of hand sanitising points, put protective covers over most of the computers (that still allow you to use them), set-up 'bubble zones' around the museum to help ensure you distance from other social bubbles, and we are asking you to wear a face mask during your visit.
We have worked hard to ensure the museum is COVID compliant whilst maintaining the interactive experience as much as possible, but to do this we are asking visitors to stick to our rules and help create as safe an environment as possible for everyone.
For more information visit our COVID-19: What To Expect page. We really hope that you'll help us make this work. We've kept the experience as close as possible to how it originally was.
