Visitor Information and Contact Details

The Restored Museum November 2019
Lots to see inside
Museum Location

The museum collection is housed in an iconic Tudor timber-framed building with a modern architect designed extension. It is Grade II* listed. It stands in Swan Street facing north down Mill Street.

Opening Times

  • We are open every Sunday and Bank Holiday from 2.30 to 5.00 pm
  • At present entrance is free but we rely upon donations from visitors to keep the museum open and suggest at least £2.50 per adult
  • Parties and special visits can be arranged at any mutually convenient time

Opening after Lockdown

We are back in business again with plenty for you to see including  old favourites and many new discoveries from the stores which we have brought out for your delight.

Please respect the wishes of our volunteer staff who will advise you on the best routes around the building, depending on other visitors. If we have a crush you may be asked to wait outside for a short while!

We will be gradually bringing back our other services and regular events over the coming months – look out for information.

We feel this is in the best interests of visitors and the volunteers who run the museum.


Volunteer groups work in the museum on most Monday evenings from 5.00 to 7.00pm and Tuesday afternoons, 2.30 to 4.30pm. These are good times to drop in but if you are coming a long way please ring or email beforehand to make sure someone is there. 


We do not currently charge for entry. Donations towards out running costs are very much welcomed. We are a Registered Charity No. 271473 and the entrance fee we normally charge is our only regular source of income. Donations can be made by card via the Donation Button on this website.

Group Visits

Groups of any size or age can be accommodated at a time to suit you by prior arrangement. Group visits can include a guided walk around the village. The cost for a combined walk and museum visit is £6.00 per person.

For further information ring 01462 742 956.
