We are deeply committed to our vision of connecting cultures, anhave continued to be so throughout this past year, albeit it through digital means. Like many museums, our charity has been badly impacted financially by the current crisis and protracted closures. If you are able to offer support please consider becoming a member or making a donation.

Our priority is to ensure the safety and comfort of our visitors, volunteers and staff, and protect those who are vulnerable. We are therefore maintaining our health and safety measures – you must wear a face covering while visiting us (unless exempt) .
