|Museum Reopening - 16 August
The Government's guidelines for managing the Covid-19 pandemic allow museums to reopen to the public from 4 July, so long as all appropriate safety measures for staff, volunteers and visitors are in place.
We are pleased to announce that starting on 16 August the Museum will be open to the public on Sundays and Wednesdays between 2 and 5 pm, with last entry at 4:30 pm. We regret that the Shop and Buffet will not be open, although we hope that we can reopen the Shop soon, once we have gained experience of operating with Covid restrictions in place. It is unlikely that the Buffet will be open until the New Year.
We regret that access and use of some of our displays will be curtailed, particularly those which are interactive or tactile, however much of what the Museum normally offers will be available.
In view of the long shutdown and the reduced facilities in the Museum, all annual tickets sold in August - Nov 2020 will be valid until 30 November 2021. And any visitors presenting with an annual ticket issued at any time in 2019 may use that ticket until 30 November 2020.
