What to wear during your visit

As much of our museum is outdoors, we recommend sensible shoes and appropriate clothing for the time of year, with waterproofs essential for wet days. 

Many schools encourage their students to dress up in traditional clothing for their visit, helping to make the experience more immersive - and a great photo opportunity!
