To comply with Government guidelines and in line with what other Museums are currently doing please see below for steps visitors must take when visiting the Museum.  Please be aware that the majority of our volunteers fall within the Covid 19 "at risk" category and the guidelines are for their safety as well as your own.  Please listen to instructions from volunteers, we are here to make your visit as enjoyable as possible...

All Battery volunteers will be wearing a face covering.

All visitors except for children under 11 MUST wear a face covering when inside the Museum or Education Centre.  If you do not have one the Battery can supply a face covering for a donation.  Anyone without a face covering will be refused entry. If you are exempt, proof must be provided.

Please use the hand sanitising station just inside the Museum buildings.

Social distancing measures will remain in place inside the museum buildings and outside.

A one way system will be in employed inside the Museum.

A limited number of visitors will be allowed into the Museum at any one time and regrettably only 2 visitors will be allowed into the Education Centre at any one time.  This may lead to some queueing for which we aplogise for in advance.  

We pride ourselves on being a very much "hands on" Museum but unfortunately we can no longer allow visitors to handle ANY items, INCLUDING THE WEAPONS.  This is for your safety as well as our own.  This will hopefully change in the future as restrictions are lifted.

Unfortunately we can no longer offer a toilet facility for visitors.

Please note that none of the buildings in the grounds are currently open, although there is still plenty to see around the grounds.
