THE MUSEUM IS OPEN!
Tuesday 11 August
We have been busy making plans to ensure we can safely welcome visitors back to the Museum of Richmond and we are delighted to announce that we are officially open! This will be for visitors with pre-booked tickets only, which can be booked online:
Please note that face coverings are mandatory in museums so we will require visitors over the age of 11 to wear a face covering during their visit. This will not apply to those with exemptions.
The only public toilet is open Monday-Friday and is accessed from outside the building so it may be easiest to access this at the start or end of your visit.

We also recommend you read our ‘What to Expect on Your Visit’ document, which outlines how your visit will run and some aspects that will be different from previous visits to the Museum.
We can’t wait to welcome you back to the Museum of Richmond.
