Open Days

Our Museum is staffed entirely by volunteers so at the moment we can only open on a selection of weekends between April and November. Usually these include Bank Holiday weekends.

The calendar beneath shows the dates we are open – if a date isn’t shown, then the Museum is closed to the public that day. Admission for events with a yellow date bar at the bottom are charged at our standard rate; ones with a red date bar are TrolleydayPlus events.

You can download a pdf of 2022 open days here.

We can open for private visits on other dates if arranged in advance – there is a minimum charge for this. If you’d like to know more, check this page.
