The museum is now closed for 2017.

We open from Easter to the end of October - exact dates will appear closer to the time.


When we re-open in 2018 our opening hours will be

2-5pm Wednesday, Friday and Saturday

and 11am-5pm on Sundays and Bank Holidays.


Admission is £2 for adults and 50p for children 

FREE admission on each Bank Holiday Monday!

FREE admission for children during school holidays.


We participate in the 'Essex Pass' scheme which provides reduced admission across many attractions in Essex.


We can also accommodate groups,

both day and evenings, during November by prior arrangement

please contact the Museum for  further details.


Our museum is a charity run entirely by unpaid volunteers, and therefore our resources are very limited.  We will make every effort to either answer directly any enquiries you may have, or assist you by redirecting you to another source of information.
