We love furry friends as much as our visitors, but unfortunately due to the delicate nature of the equipment within the museum we cannot allow dogs into the exhibition spaces. Dogs are welcome on the Terrace (the Café‘s outside seating area), and to enjoy the Valley Trail, part of the Valley Tales & Trails Exhibition.
