The Scenic Lift to the Treetop Walkway is currently out of use. The lift in the Winter Gardens has experienced technical issues for some time despite many attempts to have it repaired and operational. The Museum team is now working hard to consider a longer term solution for the lift and we sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused to our customers whilst this is underway.
The museum will continue with our Covid secure arrangements after 19 July including expecting visitors to continue to wear face coverings and keeping our distance when visiting because we know that this, together with things like washing our hands, ventilating rooms and meeting outside where possible, helps to protect others
Before you visit, we recommend you check out our Keeping you Safe pages to read about the continued measures we have in place to keep our visitors safe.
