Our Plans for Re-opening

The King's House

We wanted to update you on our current position after the government’s announcement about re-opening museums on 4 July.

Salisbury Museum is in the early stages of planning to re-open so we will not be ready to welcome visitors on 4 July. We want to make sure that we have exactly the right safety precautions and procedures in place – the health of our visitors, staff, volunteers and members is of the utmost importance to us. It is highly likely we will initially open for special members only tours in mid-July and the public in late July.

If you want to find out more about our plans as they evolve please check our social media channels. Find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. You can also subscribe to our free monthly e-newsletter via our website.

The current situation continues to put an enormous strain on all our finances. We will need your support more than ever, to ensure we can offer the same incredible programme of exhibitions, events and activities when we reopen. Membership is one of the only sources of regular income we have through this challenging time.

There are a number of ways you can help:

  • Become a member of the museum
  • If you are already a museum member, renew your membership
  • Use Amazon Smile for online purchases. When you shop on smile.amazon.co.uk, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) to us if you nominate the museum as your chosen charity
  • Make a donation. You can do this through JustGiving

Your continued support in these difficult times, is so very much appreciated. The museum team and trustees look forward to welcoming you back to museum soon.

Please take care.

Best wishes from The Salisbury Museum team
