Temporary removal of Sulley from Monsters! The Good, The Bad and The Cuddly

We would like to advise visitors to our exhibition, Monsters! The Good, The Bad and The Cuddly, that our giant, hand-crafted Sulley will be temporarily removed from our exhibition between Monday 23 – Monday 30 April for maintenance.

The exhibition will be closed from 1.30pm on Monday 23 April and will re-open at 9am on Tuesday 24 April with a cut-out replacement for Sulley. It will then be closed again at 12noon on Monday 30 April and will re-open at 9am on Tuesday 1 May with the giant, hand-crafted Sulley back in position.
