Now open on Mondays! (for a couple of months)

The museum's normal opening times are Tuesday to Saturday (opening one hour later on Saturdays), but for the next two months, starting today (Monday 25th July 2011), we're trialling the idea of also being open on Mondays (10am-5pm).

So that's now Monday-to-Saturday, until the end of September. If Mondays are especially convenient for you, mark your diary.

The carriages left Chris' museum workshop today.
