The wellbeing of our visitors, staff and volunteers is our top priority. Following government guidance issued on 16 March regarding minimising the spread of coronavirus, we have taken the very difficult decision to close Milestones Museum to the public from 18 March. The current plan is that it will not re-open until April 5 at the earliest, this will be under weekly review. If you have an event booked, we will be in touch shortly with information about cancellations, refunds or re-booking. Thank you for your patience and we apologise for any disappointment that this may cause.

We continue to follow official guidance from the UK Government and Public Health England closely to ensure that all possible procedures are in place at our venues across the county, these include:
- Educating staff and volunteers on prevention of the spread of the virus
- Emphasising the importance of frequent and proper hand washing
- Continuing to operate high standards of hygiene and cleanliness in all of our venues, including high contact points
- Providing hand sanitizer where possible
We request that our visitors follow current government advice during a visit to any of our venues.
In line with current UK Government and Public Health guidance, we are continuing to operate as normal. Given the rapidly changing and unprecedented nature of this virus, we are monitoring the situation daily and will respond promptly to implement any updates to guidance as they are issued.
