The trustees of The Bowes Museum are delighted to announce that it will reopen to visitors at 10am on Saturday 1st August.
Visitors will be able to see the hugely popular Norman Cornish: The Definitive Collection exhibition which has been extended until January next year, as well as Pre-Raphaelite Knights: Reinventing the Medieval World and blimey! Lucretia. There will also be a host of family fun throughout the summer holidays.
The health and well-being of our visitors, staff and volunteers is our number one priority and in line with the latest Government guidance on COVID-19 changes have had to be made in how the Museum operates so that visitors will feel confident and safe and have a relaxing and enjoyable visit.
Entry will now be by pre-booked timed ticketed admission, available through the Museum website or by calling 01833 690606. The Museum has had a deep clean and cleaning regimes have been increased, especially in areas that are touched frequently. There are numerous hand sanitisation stations around the building and grounds and people are asked to respect social distancing at all times.
Annual passes that were valid when the Museum closed on Wednesday 18 March, have been extended by 4 months.
