Visits to the Society/Research

You will be able to appreciate, only when you visit the museum, why it is not possible for us to be open to the public all day, every day, but sincerely hope that this will not discourage you from making a date to visit us. Whether singly or as a family or a group or club, we would be delighted to offer you a guided tour of our various galleries displaying so many wonderous collections. We do not charge for a tour, but naturally, if you enjoyed the experience and wished to make a contribution towards our costs, there is a donation box for your use.

Members of the public are welcome to visit the Museum premises as set out below:

Arrangements to be made in advance by telephone (01775 724658) or email ( or use the link below, for the attention of the Curator:

1. Open 09.00-12.00 on Monday mornings (not Bank Holidays) - for individuals but not groups.

2. Other times for individuals and groups, by arrangement.

Un-booked visits:

3. The Society is normally open for individual visits one or two days during the national annual Heritage Open Day programme in September.

4. The Society will also be open on the third Sunday of the months January-April 2015 between 13.00 and 16.00 for un-booked tours of the Collection (subject to sufficient volunteers). If successful, these arrangements would be continued in the winter months of 2015-16.

Members of the Society have ready access on Monday mornings 09.00-12.00 without prior arrangement, and on Thursday evenings 19.00-21.00, when they may bring guests. At other times, arrangements are as noted above for non-members.

As well as guided tours, we are always delighted to accommodate anyone who wishes to use our collections, library and other facilities to assist them with research or for academic studies. Tables and seating are readily available and you are welcome to bring a laptop to assist you in your work, but again it would be necessary to contact the Curator in order to make prior arrangements to your visit. We can then ensure that the items you need are available as well as someone to assist you if necessary.

We very much look forward to seeing you.
