COVID-19 Update

In response to the latest government guidance, Tullie House implemented a phased closure in order to protect our staff, volunteers and visitors.  Decisions about eventual reopening will be made in accordance with the latest government guidance.  This decision was not taken lightly and was done in conjunction with partners and stakeholders.  With the health of our community uppermost in our minds we feel closing is the safest option.  We look forward to reopening with our exciting programme of exhibitions and events as soon as possible.

Under the UK Government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme many of the Tullie House staff have been furloughed and are unable to reply to messages at the moment. We apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. If your matter is urgent, you can contact the museum at  

Why not, have a look at the digital content we have available, check out our Facebook page. To continue to support the museum, you can donate here. Thank you for your patience and understanding in these exceptional times.

Tullie House Museum has collected the history of Carlisle and Cumbria for over 125 years. Our collections tell the stories of the people who have lived, loved, worked and died here. We collect to remember what has happened, so that we learn from our past and use it to inform our future.
