Liberty Street (contains font irony)

Liberty Street, London SW9, is an enviable address with a suitably distinctive street sign.
 
Unusually for London, the sign features The Village Font, (a derivative of Albertus™) which was used in the 1960s TV drama The Prisoner.
 
Bonus font fact: Liberty Street is just around the corner from the Type Museum in Hackford Street.
 
Tantalisingly, the museum is not open to the public at present. As with the Village in the Prisoner series, I'd like to know what one has to do to end up inside...
