COVID-19 Update

We are looking at possible ways of allowing public access to the museum. Even providing very limited access will have a significant effect on our finances, and as we rely solely on donations, we are seeking help to cover the purchase of the PPE and hand sanitiser that will be needed.

Please help us if you can by donating to our PPE appeal via the PayPal Donate button.
