N.B. If you represent a school or are a member of a group or represent a group of people who would like to arrange a visit to the Museum, during the winter months, please contact us well in advance via the website e-mail address: , with details of your request.                                 School parties are particularly welcome to visit, by arrangement.

Please be aware that we are required by law to have two trained Fire Warden Trustees on site, whenever members of the public are admitted. The Trustees, who are all unpaid volunteers, are willing to consider requests from groups of ten or more adults, to visit the Museum on mutually agreed days. We will do their best to accommodate such requests, in addition to our normal Outreach Programme for visits by local school parties.

Future Change of Address & New Postcode: It may be next year before a correct Post Code is entered in all SatNav databases, so for SatNav users, the old postcode BH23 8AU is still appropriate for the Museum until further notice.         Enter the Heatherstone Grange Estate from Derritt Lane and turn immediately left, following the road round the estate as in the map below:

Contact via e-mail remains the same, namely
