Winter 2021 /2022

With the Museum now closed for the Winter months we look forward to welcoming everyone back in Spring 2022.

In the meantime we will be holding special events both at the Museum and online, so keep an eye out for any updates on those either through our website or any of our social media accounts.

It will still be possible for group tours to be arranged by appointment while we’re closed to the public. To arrange a visit please contact the museum at info@ellislandfarm.co.uk.
