Sorry we are closed but…

Posted by Tenby Museum on Mar 19, 2020 Blog, News No Comments

With the Covid-19 virus dictating all decisions and our choices at the present moment, for the safety of our staff and visitors, Tenby Museum & Art Gallery has taken the decision to close to the general public for the foreseeable future in order to reduce social contact and potential spread of the disease.

This is a difficult time for all of us but it is the only responsible course of action available at such a time.  The wellbeing of our workforce – volunteers and staff, due to age and underlying long-term illnesses are officially classed as  ‘vulnerable’ – and visitors must take priority over any other issue.  It will of course have a financial impact upon us, as, being an independent charity, our only source of consistent regular income is from admission tickets but we are working on ways in which we can remain ‘open’ whilst reducing risk from a physical visit.

Ways in which we are remaining accessible include:

  • Research – if you do have any research enquiries please email us at info@tenbymuseum.org.uk. We are still picking up emails but due to the current circumstances there will likely be an extended delay in us getting back to you with the information that you require.  However we will endeavour to help out in anyway we can.
  • Art sales – sadly Sian McGill’s wonderful exhibition is not viewable in the gallery space.  Her work is however available to see and purchase on-line (just follow the homepage link on the museum website to the Current Exhibition page) and email us with any questions you have regarding the work or are interested in purchasing.  The forthcoming exhibitions are currently up in the air so watch this space for further details as time goes on.
  • We will remain active on social media including Facebook and Twitter and feel free to contact us via either of these social media platforms.  We will do our best to keep you informed of any changes to our circumstances.

We hope that everyone can remain safe and we look forward to greeting you all again when this madness has passed.
