We’re thrilled to be able to open our doors again, and we’re so looking forward to welcoming visitors back to our unique little Museum! In planning to re-open the Museum, the safety and health of our visitors, volunteers and staff has been our top priority. A team of staff, volunteers and trustees has worked carefully to assess the risks involved and put in place the necessary measures to ensure we can open safely and in compliance with government guidelines and regulations. You will notice that we have put in place a number of measures to ensure both your safety and the safety of volunteers and staff.

  • We have put in place a one-way system and provided hand sanitiser in various locations around the Museum. In line with government regulations, we will require all visitors to wear a face covering (unless exceptions apply).
  • We would request all visitors to comply with social distancing requirements, to follow the one-way system, and to use contactless card payment in our shop whenever possible.
  • Everyone over the age of 16 should adhere to the NHS Test and Trace by scanning the QR code or filling in a paper form on entry. 
  • If you are unwell with symptoms that could be Covid-19, please stay at home.

There is no need to book your visit in advance, but to facilitate social distancing we will only be able to accommodate up to 18 people in the Museum at any one time. In line with government guidance, we recommend that each group is no more than six people or two households. In the case that you need to wait to enter, you may do so in our courtyard which has a sheltered area. 

We can’t wait to welcome you back to the Museum of Cambridge!
