The Museum is lit by candlelight on the first Tuesday of each month, from 6 until 9pm. This event is extremely popular and many more people arrive than we can possibly get in to the house. For this reason, at 5.30pm we issue tickets to the first 200 people who arrive. Please use your own judgment to decide what time to arrive, as people always arrive earlier than any time we may suggest. In order to operate a fair entry policy we do not take bookings for the evening opening. We ask that you do not reserve spaces in the queue for late-comers out of respect for the people who have patiently queued behind you. Tickets are strictly one per person. We do not provide tours. Average visiting time is an hour.
