Warrington Museum & Art Gallery is continuing with its major improvement works and to do so safely, and with as little disruption as possible to its visitors, will have to close the whole building for 9 days.
This will be from Monday 2nd September through to Wednesday 11th September inclusive. The Museum will reopen on Thursday 12th September at 10:00 am.
A new exhibition will launch in Gallery 4 on Saturday 14th September called Hold the Front Page which celebrates the 160th anniversary of the Warrington Guardian. There will also be new displays opening in Gallery 5.
Janice Hayes, Principal Museum Manager said:
"Even with all the work taking place we have managed to keep the Museum open over the whole of the summer school holidays and with very little disruption to the many visitors who came to see our exhibitions and take part in our summer holiday activities. We have decided to close the Museum now for a few days so scaffolding can be removed and the entrance hall decorated quickly and safely. Work is progressing well and we're pleased to be opening two of our galleries again with new displays and a new exhibition. The new Cabinet of Curiosities gallery, which has received Heritage Lottery Funding, will open early next year”.
