We were very disappointed when visiting over the mayday bank holiday to find the museum almost totally shut, except for one small gallery. We had paid nearly £4 to park, and the opening hours were displayed as normal as we drove past and into the car park. It was only when we went inside that we were told of the closure for four weeks to train volunteers. Just like the visitor who commented at Christmas that there were no opening times displayed on the website, there is no indication online or outside the main entrance that the museum is almost totally shut at present.
Red House Museum replies
We are sorry that your visit to the Red House was not as you'd expected. We are currently in a period of restructure which does mean certain areas of the Museum will be closed over the following 4 weeks. A notice of the closure has been on the front door of the Museum for a number of weeks now and it has also been highlighted on our website for nearly two months. Once again, please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this our semi-closure may have caused.

Disappointed that we were unable to visit on the 30th Dec. We checked the website for opening times prior to making a 25 mile journey. Could I make a plea for you to publish amended opening times in advance? Arriving to find a note pinned inside the door is unacceptable these days.
Red House Museum replies
We're very sorry that the museum website didn't include our Christmas opening times this year. We will ensure this won't happen again.

Really enjoyed my visit to the Red House Museum yesterday, especially your research resources. I was thrilled to discover a photograph of my father, Alan Mitchell, holding a placard to protest about the closure of SRDE - many thanks for allowing me a photocopy of this. It made it a very special visit for me.

I loved going to The red house. It had all the information i needed for my homework. Thank you...
Attended a recent talk by the author Lillian Harry. Upon entering the building we were made to feel very welcome indeed by friendly staff. The talk was a surprise for my mother of 83 who is an avid reader and was so thrilled to also have chance to chat with Ms. Harry. Her talk was very interesting and she made us all welcome snd at the end answered everyone's question. Oh and the refreshments were a bonus. The museum is well worth a visit to see many items from a bygone era.
it was an interesting video to watch and will help me when doing my school project on the history of christchurch. so thank you.
