After being closed for over 4 months during the Covid-19 crisis, Amberley Museum has opened its doors to families and visitors once again. After a successful preview weekend for members, the 36-acre site in the heart of the South Downs National Park will open to the general public from Wednesday 29th July.
The museum has implemented a range of new measures in response to the Covid-19 situation and has received the ‘We’re Good to Go’ Industry Standard to confirm that it is following Government and industry guidelines and processes to maintain cleanliness and social distancing. These include markings on the floor, hand sanitisers, one-way systems in the larger exhibitions and ‘one family at a time’ in some of the smaller building on site.

‘The weekend has been much-needed for the Museum Staff & Volunteers. We have been working hard getting ready for reopening for several weeks and it’s a huge relief that it went so well. We look forward to continuing to welcome families and visitors back for the rest of the Summer and then on to our Winter Season.’ – Caymen O’Reilly, Marketing Officer
