A new multi million pound link road
being built alongside our building has been completed. The developer
is about to start building houses next to us which will provide a new
car park for the museum and we can then build a new visitor entrance
Unfortunately there will be some disruption to access to the museum as new
cables and drains are laid and fences built. There will also be dust and debris in the area.
We aim to remain open daily but there
will be days when we will have to close at short notice due to
contractors requirements. This is beyond our control but we apologise
in advance for any inconvenience to our visitors.
