We are so excited to announce that Charnwood Museum will be re-opening on Wednesday 19th May at 10am!

As Covid-19 restrictions remain in place we have had to adapt our offer significantly; to assist our visitors with planning a visit to the Museum the team have created a 'Frequently Asked Questions' page on our website.

Here you will be able to find out about our opening days and hours, the safety measures we have put in place and what additional activities are, or are not on offer.

We cannot wait to welcome you back!
