After almost six months closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Nantwich Museum will reopen to the public this week.
Nantwich museum has received generous emergency funding to support the reopening and the development of its work from National Lottery Heritage Fund, Arts Council England and Cheshire East Council.
Nantwich Museum will reopen on Friday 18 September and will be open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, from 10am-4.30pm for visitors who have pre-booked tickets. To do this, click www.nantwichmuseum.org.uk
Throughout the closures, staff worked from home to continue to bring the museum to residents through online means and created home-schooling content, that many parents found useful during the full lockdown situation.
The closure also gave staff the opportunity to undertake housekeeping tasks and develop new displays, ready to inspire visitors.
The planning and preparation of the reopening of both venues has been in accordance with Covid-19 measures to give protection to visitors, staff and volunteers. The changes made will make visits as safe as they can be.
Nantwich Museum visitors will have an opportunity to visit the temporary exhibition in the Millennium Gallery, 'Personal Voices' by the Breakaway Textile Group, which will remain in place until the end of the year.
Museum Manager, Kate Dobson said: "I am extremely grateful to all those volunteers, who have been only too keen to enable the museum to reopen as soon as possible despite what will inevitably be challenging conditions."
Visitors must book their visit by telephoning the museum on 01270 627104, when they will also be advised of any specific requirements.
Information and reminders about events at museums will feature on Cheshire East Council's social media pages. Please follow @CheshireEastCouncil on Facebook and @CheshireEast on Twitter to keep up-to-date.
