Plan your visit

We are open now and plan to be open until 30 September, provided the Covid-regulations do not change. See below for opening hours.

Free Time-entry tickets are available on the Eventbrite links on the News page. The remainder of  the season is divided into 4 separate periods, so please ensure you use the correct link

This will help to ensure that visitors are spread out in the Museum. You can still come to the Museum without a ticket, but you may have to wait if there are visitors already in the Museum.  

Entry is Still free  

But do  please leave us a donation to help run the museum
The Museum is entirely run by volunteers.

Tour Information

We are always happy to organise tours for groups. Tours are scheduled at times when the Museum is closed to other visitors, but are not available during the current pandemic owing to restrictions on numbers.  

We are also happy to provide a speaker to local groups, to talk about Hand-loom weaving and Newtown's boom and bust in the 1800s or similar topics. 

An information sheet on our tour arrangements is available.
