FAQs

What dates are available?
• Visits booked on a Monday or Tuesday will have the whole building to themselves as the museum is closed on these days.  We are trying to keep to these days as it means we can provide a better experience for everyone.  If you would prefer another day we will try to accommodate you.  Please provide a few preferred dates for your visits when checking availability with our team.
I need Risk Assessment details
• We provide full risk assessment documents and further education session information by email.
What is your cancellation policy?
• There is a cancellation fee of 25% if the booking is cancelled within 14-8 days of the visit. This rises to 50% if the booking is cancelled within the 7 days leading up to the visit.
