COVID-19 information

To help keep everyone safe, we’ve made some changes in line with government guidelines to manage our visitor numbers and ensure we maintain social distancing to protect you, our staff and volunteers. This includes asking you to pre-book a timed visit. You can pre-book by selecting the venue you would like to visit, where you can also find out the measures we are putting in place to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Why have I received an account activation email?

Accounts are created with our ticketing partner Digitickets and can be accessed at http://hcct.digitickets.co.uk. The account allows you to manage your annual ticket, or renew it within 30 days of expiry. Accounts are not mandatory.

What paperwork do I need to show when I visit the museum? What if I lose my paperwork?

Your ticket will be issued via email as an e-ticket. You can either print this out and bring it with you, or display your e-ticket to a member of staff using your smartphone/ tablet. If you lose your e-ticket, our staff will be able to search for you using the details you provided on purchase. This can be name, email address, post code etc.
