Looking for an interesting venue for a group or organisation?

The Museum can accommodate up to approximately 30 persons for a private or group visit.   Mondays have been specifically kept free for such occasions. However, other days and times, including evenings, can normally be arranged to suit specific needs.

We also have handling boxes which can be filled with artefacts depicting a chosen theme or topic and these can be borrowed by an organisation or taken to an organisation for a talk by one of our volunteers.

For something a little bit different – a private Dark and Deadly Walking Tour® can be arranged. A minimum number of 10 is required for a private evening tour and the maximum number is 20. Costs on request.
