Reopening

It was announced today that museums and attractions can begin to open from 4 July, so we wanted to update you about our plans for reopening.  We’re making sure we have everything in place so that when you visit it is as safe and enjoyable as possible.  Our venues won't be open on 4 July. The opening of our venues will be phased and as soon as dates are confirmed we will share these with you.

In the meantime we'd really appreciate your feedback by completing our survey to help us with opening plans. We're looking forward to welcoming you back soon. Thank you.
