for renovation of entrance hall and shop.

It's a very busy time here and the latest of our projects will see our Museum shop refitted and redecorated.  As this is at the hub of the building we will be unable to open to the public for the period of the refit.  We apologise for any inconvenience and plan to reopen on Thursday 21 March 2013.
