Museum Manners

Visiting the Museum should be an enjoyable experience.

We try to avoid too many rules, but there are a few ‘Museum Manners’ we expect visitors to follow. These are for everyone’s comfort and safety, and to protect irreplaceable collection objects and the 130 year-old building.

Museum Manners:

  • You are welcome to talk, laugh, cry, wonder, get excited and be imaginative.
  • We ask you not to bring food or drink, or touch objects unless the sign says you can do so.
  • Photographs and selfies are welcome, but not selfie sticks or commercial photography.

Please ‘tag’ the Museum if you share your photographs.
