Please visit the Dock Museum ahead of your booking to carry out your own risk assessment. Be aware that there is deep water on the museum site. You can use this document as a basis for your own risk assessment.
Lunch can be eaten outside on the picnic tables or inside the museum (but eating inside has to be confirmed first with us). We have a cafe and an excellent shop where affordable souvenirs can be bought. And our playground is a great way of finishing off a fun visit to the Dock Museum.
Although tours are free, donations are appreciated to help continue the service. Recommended donation: £20.
We're happy to help in any way and discuss your visit further. Tours and workshops can also be customised to your needs.
