Amberley Museum Reopening

We are delighted to announce, that after 129 days of having to close our doors during the Covid crisis, we are preparing to open our doors to families and visitors once again.

We will be open to members only on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th July and then to the general public from Wednesday 29th July. We have implemented a range of new measures to maximise the safety of all visitors and adhere to Government guidelines. Read our full COVID-19 visiting information here. 

Our Museum Director Valerie Mills commented: “Museums all over the country have been crippled with the Covid crisis. Amberley was no exception and at one point we were very concerned that after 40 years the Museum may have to shut permanently. However, an emergency funding grant from Arts Council England and the overwhelming generosity of our members and local people who love the museum and donated to an emergency appeal has truly saved the day. We are very excited to welcome our visitors back and with such a large site and so much outdoors there really is something for everyone to enjoy in a safe and fun environment. The support of our visitors over the coming months will be mission critical in making sure Amberley Museum is still here in another 40 years.”

Booking in advance is required and you can buy your tickets here. We have three time slots for arrivals and once on site visitors can stay as long as they like until closing time at 4.30pm.

We look forward to welcoming you back!
