Electric Vehicle Charging Points
There are four charging points at the Conference Entrance, located at the back of the Museum building and six charging points to the rear of the Museum visitor car park. Two of these have a 22kw charging socket and the rest have 7kw charging sockets. You can charge your electric vehicle using the NewMotion app or ad-hoc using a QR code. If you have a NewMotion account and fob, you just tap the fob on the charge point it will commence charging and will charge the fob holders account accordingly.
