On 12 June, the Government updated the Health Protection regulations* on preventing the spread of Covid-19 to further ease some of the lockdown restrictions.
The changes mean that SOME museums may be able to reopening their cafes and shops from 15 June 2020 on the same terms as other non-essential retail businesses and cafes.
This means that museums can open their café or shop provided it is self-contained (i.e. separate from museum building which remains off limits to the public) and customers can enter from a place outside the closed museum.
Museums must remain closed to the public until further restrictions are officially lifted.
