The Museum is now scheduled to reopen on 19 July 2021.
To whet your appetite, we will have several new attractions to see including the exciting Virtual Reality corner showing ships loading and unloading at the harbour in 1904, our leatherback turtle using Artificial Intelligence to answer children’s random questions, (What do you eat? where were you born?), and our new Medals Cabinet allowing us to safely exhibit our complete medal collection.
We will also have done our best to meet our obligations to keep visitors safe, ranging through sanitiser, screens, masks, a one-way system around the Museum, and increased ventilation.
We really look forward to meeting you all again and would be grateful if you could tell all you meet about our reopening date, and the treats in store for visitors.
