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 mask (unless medical exceptions apply).
  • We would request all visitors to comply with social distancing requirements wherever possible, to follow the one-way system, and to use contactless card payment in our shop whenever possible.
  • We will be asking for the name, address and telephone number of one guest per party in order to facilitate Track and Trace.
  • 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 three groups in the Museum at any one time. In line with government guidance, we recommend that each group is no more than six people from no more than two households. It is possible you may have to wait to enter, but we hope this shouldn’t be the case very often.

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