We are sorry to disappoint all those who have been waiting for an announcement of a confirmed re-opening date. The internal construction and fit-out of a new café, conferencehall and Archive Dept. is taking longer than expected due to contractual issues. Already much has been completed and a brand new interior is taking shape in a quite spectacular manner. New hands-on and interactive displays are in process of being constructed ready for installation . . . . including a ‘Drive a Lorry’ simulator for young children to enjoy.It will all be worthwhile !
