In response to the latest government guidance and in order to protect staff, volunteers and visitors, Tullie House has closed the museum building and grounds to the public.
Decisions about eventual reopening will be made in accordance with the latest government guidance. This decision was not taken lightly and was done in conjunction with partners and stakeholders.
Andrew Mackay, Director of Tullie House said “With the health of our community, staff and volunteers uppermost in our minds we feel closing is the safest option. We will be monitoring the situation closely and responding as per the government guidance.
We have put plans in place to ensure that our staff are supported during this difficult period.
We will be managing our finances very closely as the drop in income will be very detrimental to our business and to survive, as a charity, we rely on admission income, donations and café sales.
We will plan carefully and look forward to reopening with our exciting programme of exhibitions and events as soon as possible.”
At present, all events up until the end of April have been postponed or cancelled. Tullie House will look to reschedule events upon reopening and will be contacting ticket holders at that point. If you need to contact Tullie House, please email [email protected] for urgent enquiries.
