An update on our reopening:

The latest government announcement, imposing a second lockdown in November will mean that we cannot open our doors to the public on the 16th of November.

It’s not the news we want to share but rest assured, we are still working to get the museum ready while following the latest guidelines and restrictions.

We will share a new opening date with you all as soon as we can. In the meantime, we’d like to thank our visitors, friends and supporters for celebrating our progress and cushioning the blow of our setbacks with us.

We look forward to celebrating with you very soon as we welcome you back to Thackray Museum of Medicine.
