Keeping Covid-Vigilant


COVID-19 will be a feature of our lives for the foreseeable future. We need to learn to live with it and manage the risk to ourselves and others.

All of us can play our part by understanding the situations where risks of COVID-19 infection and transmission are likely to be higher, and taking action to reduce these risks.

The safety of our visitors, volunteers and staff is Bailiffgate's number one priority. In view of this some measures remain in place across the museum and gallery to ensure that your visit remains a safe and enjoyable experience.

We continue to review the Government guidance and make changes appropriately making sure we communicate them to visitors and volunteers.

To keep people safe we have a number of things still in place

  • Pre-booking your ticket is possible through Art Tickets with timeslot tickets and limited visitor numbers in place at Bailiffgate Museum & Gallery - Art Tickets . You can, however also turn up at the museum and buy your tickets.
  • Cleaning of the museum and gallery – our enhanced cleaning route remains in place
  • Ventilation – we will continue to open doors where possible and allow air to circulate
  • Feeling unwell with COVID symptoms or awaiting a COVID test result – please do not visit the museum, or come in to volunteer at the museum.
