Ancient House Museum will be taking part in the national Heritage Open Day event once again this September.

To celebrate Heritage Open Day, Ancient House Museum will be offering free admission to visitors for two days on Sunday 12th September and Saturday 18th September.

To keep our visitors and staff as safe as we possibly can we have implemented a social distancing strategy, limiting the number of people on the site at any one time.

It is essential that you book your visit in advance using this site as tickets will not be available on arrival.

Please note that this entry time is not unique to you - each entry slot can accommodate several ticket holders.

In accordance with government guidelines no more than 6 people will be permitted to enter on a single booking, visitors must wear a face covering, unless exempt, throughout their visit. We are legally required to collect contact details for all visitors aged 16 and over - please scan the QR code or complete a Test & Trace form on arrival.
