Museum sets out re-opening roadmap to recovery...

The Museum of Gloucester and The Tourist Information Centre (TIC) are delighted to announce their roadmap to re-opening and recovery, starting with the museum shop, café and the TIC re-opening on 13 April 2021. They will then look forward to welcoming visitors back to the wider museum (subject to government guidance) on 18 May 2021.

To also better adapt to the needs of their audiences and visitors, the flagship cultural venue is also changing their opening days to Tuesday to Sunday. Opening hours will also become seasonal, with the following taking full effect from May...

New opening hours:

  • Mid-February- October: Museum and TIC | 10am-5pm, Tuesday-Saturday and 11-4pm on Sundays
  • November-Mid-February: Museum and TIC | 10am-4pm, Tuesday-Saturday and 11-3pm on Sundays

All front-of-house staff are committed to following government guidance in terms of distancing/numbers in the TIC, shop and café. To celebrate this milestone achievement in re-opening, for the whole of April, they are also offering one free take-out hot drink with every gift shop purchase of over £5...

The news that the Museum and TIC can re-open couldn’t have come at a better time as the Museum’s Engagement team are busy planning for their summer family-friendly exhibition and programme, The Wonderful World of the Ladybird Book Artists! The Museum and Tourist Information Centre cannot wait to welcome visitors back!

Cllr Steve Morgan, cabinet member for Culture said: “I am absolutely delighted to be able to announce a roadmap for the Museum of Gloucester and the Tourist Information Centre re-opening; 2020 and 2021 so far, have placed immense strain on the cultural sector and its visitors. I have no doubt that whilst following strict government guidelines, the museum, shop, café and TIC can open safely and successfully and provide visitors with the quality service and experiences that they have grown to know and love within our fabulous heritage city”.
