The museum has some rare books and manuscripts in its research library. A team of volunteers has been trained to support visitors in their search for people, places and publications. The library will be staffed from 1200 to 1600 on Tuesdays,Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Other times/days can be arranged by prior appointment.
Access to the library during these times is free to Friends of the Museum. Other visitors will have the first half hour free then a charge will be made. If anyone wishes a member of the research team to undertake research on their behalf, please enquire as to cost.
