Welcome to Melton Museum in Thorpe End

Visitor Notice

Following the latest government announcement, all parts of Leicestershire will move into local restriction Tier 3: Very High on Wednesday 2 December.

Under local restrictions, it means that Melton Carnegie Museum will remain closed.

Keeping our heritage sites closed for longer means even tougher times ahead for those working in the tourism industry. We ask that you continue to support our site by visiting us in 2021 and in the meantime, you can continue to support us by getting involved with our posts, activities and events through all our normal social media channels.

We're all in this together and will make sure our approach continues to reflect the latest government guidelines. Keep up to date by visiting www.gov.uk/coronavirus and follow our social media channels to hear the latest from us.
