Price Rise from March 26th 2024
As everyone is aware, rising costs are having a drastic effect on all aspects of our lives. The charity that runs the museum is no exception, from the basic costs of materials for our café or for maintenance, to energy costs and staff costs. Over the next few months we are faced with some quite excessive increase in our running costs which if not addressed could impact severely on the future of the museum. The charity is already trying to take steps to alleviate some of the increases, but regretably some are beyond our control. It is worth noting at this point that apart from Covid support, our Charity has never received any public funding and for 8 years has survived and grown from our own generated income and the amazing support from you, our visitors and customers.

It is with great regret that we have to announce an increase in the price of our entrance tickets from 1st March 2023. The new prices are Adults £14.95 Children age 5 to 15 £2.50 Family Ticket – 2 Adults & 3 Children – £33.00 Concessions £11.00 Concessions are senior citizens 65 and over, holders of a current MOD identity card and certain other categories where prior arrangements have been made. Please call us on 01983 305 555 if you are unsure whether you qualify or not.
