Historical rooms

For your own safety, you are advised to wear sensible shoes when visiting as the museum contains original 18th century floors which can be uneven. Stilettos damage the original flooring and leather soled-shoes are particularly unsuitable. Please note that certain rooms have low lighting.

Recitals and Events

Please note that the Rehearsal and Performance Room is closed during recitals and events. Visitors will be charged a concession price when this occurs. Please see the What's on page to check if this will apply during your visit, or telephone the Museum to confirm with a member of staff.
