If you have enjoyed this presentation for Heritage Open Days, and you are able, please support us in these uncertain timesThank you.
We are pleased to announce we are able to open October half term week every afternoon! Thank you to everyone who has supported us and we hope to see old and new visitors!
We have been opening at the weekends and we are pleased to say we have been fairly busy and it’s been lovely to hear a buzz in the museum after such a long time. Of course with the Covid-19 restrictions we are only allowed 27 at any one time but everything is flowing nicely. We would like to thank all of our visitors who have happily worked with us in implementing the ‘new normal’ in the museum and being understanding about the added restriction of having to wear face coverings at all times in museums. We ourselves wear clear visors at all times . We hope the choice of using these visors makes your visit more enjoyable as you can see our mouths whilst we talk to you. We hope to see many more of you coming through our doors in the coming weeks and months!
Thank you all for the overwhelming support we have received.
As our opening hours are brief at the moment and we haven’t been able to create a new exhibition for you this year we have decided to make this previous exhibition available externally.
If you’ve enjoyed viewing please consider making a donation, for any amount, even a £1!Thank you everyone for supporting us in these difficult times. We hope we can return to some kind of proper normal soon.

The museum staff are excited to welcome our new exhibit as seen in this week's Observer. Bob Arrowsmith has spent three months making this detailed model of the Cyril and Lillan Bishop in a bottle complete with soldiers being rescued. Bob told us how he made the model using his own handmade tools. The model can be seen now in our boat making section in the extension. Please come and marvel at the intricate detail. Bob has also donated his handmade tools to the museum and these will shortly also be on display.
