Visiting with confidence

It’s really important to us that you’re able to visit your museums with confidence. We’re continuing to take steps to keep all our visitors and staff safe.

When you enter

  • Face coverings are welcomed and encouraged in the museum to help keep everyone safe
  • Please use the hand sanitiser station just inside the doors
  • Make space for other visitors and staff and keep younger visitors with you during your visit
  • Check-in to support the NHS Test & Trace programme
  • If you are experiencing any symptoms of Covid-19, please don’t visit the museum

We’re helping you visit safely by

  • Limiting the number of visitors in the building and gallery spaces
  • Hand sanitiser available throughout the museum
  • Enhanced cleaning throughout the day
  • Keeping doors open wherever possible to avoid multiple touch points
  • Screens on our shop counter
  • Bringing fresh air into the building through our air handling system

Weston Park does not have a car park of its own – the nearest public car park is the Q-Park on Durham Road. Visitors using this car park are able to claim 25% off the price of their parking – just ask a member of staff for a discount voucher (this discount is currently unavailable with pre-booked parking spaces). There are two disabled parking bays available on Mushroom Lane.

Toilets & Baby Change
The toilets and baby change at Weston Park Museum are open in a limited capacity to enable social distancing. Socially-distanced queue markers are in place by the toilets and enhanced cleaning will take place throughout the day. Accessible toilets are available in the museum foyer and in the main thoroughfare.

Full details of facilities and access at the museum can be found here.

Food & Drink
The museum café, Ambulo, is now open with indoor and outdoor seating available. 

The museum’s Picnic Space on the 1st floor is available via ticketed entry to help manage numbers – just ask a member of staff in the foyer for your free ticket.

We are operating a pass-out system to give you time to enjoy a picnic in the park or to get food from elsewhere. Just ask a member of staff in the museum foyer for a pass-out token.

Food and drink is not permitted in the museum’s galleries.

The Weston Park Museum Shop will be open. A perspex screen has been installed on the shop counter. We are also limiting entry to 5 customers or a single group at any time and operating a separate entrance and exit.
