THE DOORS will close on a seafront natural history museum next month for refurbishment work.
Cumberland House in Eastern Parade, Southsea, will be shut from May 9 to May 13 for work including improving disabled access.
Work will make the entrance and butterfly house accessible to wheelchairs and buggies and provide an accessible toilet and a buggy park area.
The museum, which is free to visit, will reopen on Saturday May 14 and will be open as normal from 10am-5.30pm.
Dr Jane Mee, Portsmouth’s museum and records service manager, said: ‘The temporary closure will allow this essential work to be carried out quickly to improve access so Cumberland House can be enjoyed by even more visitors.’
