UPDATE JANUARY 2021.
While we prepare the Museum for opening in April 2021, your webshop orders are most gratefully received. We despatch on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays.
Please note that during the COVID19 Pandemic, or at other tmes, The Museum is unable to offer private tours under any circumstances.
We are working hard to prepare the Museum for reopening in line with UK Government guidelines.
Major factors for our 2020 closures were:-
-Our compact premises and front of house,
-Audience density, safety, and social distancing,
-Discomfort from mandatory queuing on wet weather days,
-Mandatory one way system affecting current disabled access and emergency exits,
-Diminished visitor experience overall.
In addition, we are most concerned by the emergence of localised spikes and outbreaks of COVID19 in places which lifted lockdown early. The MWM is a place which cherishes the lives of its visitors, patrons and staff and will not knowingly or willingly put them at risk. We continue to monitor the situation on a weekly basis.
Assessments are ongoing weekly in line with best practice. We will continue to update our audience, and further announcements will be made.
