Focusing on the health and wellbeing of our staff and customers is our top priority. In line with national guidance and government recommendations we have taken the difficult decision to cancel any events involving the public or large gatherings until further notice. This will mean we will cancel all current events and close Melton Museum until further notice. We are proceeding with this closure effective immediately and would ask all customers to bear with us through these unprecedented times.

Closing our museum, along with other attractions across the nation, will mean tougher times ahead for those working in the tourism industry. We ask that you continue to support our attraction by rearranging your visit for a later date or change the event you are attending for later in the year so that you can continue to support our museum once it re-opens.

We're all in this together and will continue to closely monitor the situation and will make sure our approach reflects the latest Government guidelines. Keep up to date by visiting: www.gov.uk/coronavirus and follow our social media channels.
