Visiting the Museum
Commencing Saturay 10 February at the beginning of the local school half term week, the standard 5 day a week opening will restart, 10:00 to 16:30 on Wednesdays to Sundays (plus Bank Holiday Mondays). First train is at 10:30 with the service finishing just before 16:00.
Because of limitations on the number of cars that can be accommodated in the car park, visitors to the Museum, including members, are recommended to book their entry tickets in advance to avoid disappointment. The Museum's booking app will show "Fully Booked" once the limit is reached. However, if you are arriving by train or other means and you won't require a parking space, entry to the Museum will still be possible. There is no limit on the number of visitors allowed on site.
With that in mind, please use this link to book your tickets.

Thanks to Richard Cossey for the loan of the photographs from the Brockham Museum, the 1982-85 and 1988 sections.
