Tenby Museum and Art Gallery set to reopen
After an extended closure due to Covid and renovations, the Tenby Museum and Art Gallery is scheduled to reopen on Thursday, September 9.
Curator Mark Lewis said: “The past 18 months have been challenging, but now we look forward to welcoming visitors again. The museum has undergone a lot of renovation, redecoration and reorganization to make it as welcoming and safe as possible and we have sought to clean up the building but not the experience. All of our art exhibitions have had to move forward, but we are delighted to be able to present Tom Sloan’s Ground Control as our first exhibition.
Some changes have been put in place to ensure everyone’s safety:
The Tenby Museum asks you to pre-book a ticket using their artistic ticketing system – a link can be found on their website and also on their social media pages. The museum can only accommodate 20 visitors per hour for social distancing reasons. If you are just calling, there may be a delay in your visit, so it is advisable to call ahead before visiting if you have not pre-booked a ticket.
Staff request that everyone wear a mask for their visit and also log in to help keep track of visitors so they can let anyone know of any issues.
Opening hours for September have been reduced. The museum will currently be open Thursday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Museum staff hope to be able to increase these opening hours soon and will keep everyone informed.
The interactive screens had to be removed temporarily, but there is still a lot of fun stuff in the galleries, and quiz sheets will be available. Some of the smaller exhibition areas have also had to be closed for the time being.
More details and frequently asked questions are available on the Tenby Museum website (Plan Your Visit page).
Please contact us (by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or, after September 9 by phone at 01834 842809) if you have any questions.
