Behind the Scenes

Behind the Scenes tours

On our Behind the Scenes tours we offer the public an exciting opportunity to discover some of the hidden treasures in our stores and attics. In September each year, we also take part in Heritage Open Days, where museums around the country invite members of the public to explore areas and buildings that are not normally accessible to the public.

Our tours give an insight into the history of the Storehouse buildings and the Museum’s collections.  They are available throughout the year and can be organised on request.

If you would like to organise a visit for your group, please contact our Community Engagement Officer on 02392 727595 or
