For the safety of our visitors and as part of our fire and evacuation policy, the museum performs a series of fire alarm tests every Thursday. Our testing will take place between 10:30 and 11:00 or 15:00 and 15:30 depending on our daily activities.
A tannoy announcement will be made before and after testing.
During our fire alarm test all sounders will activate and gallery doors will release and close automatically.
