The Stained Glass Museum will reopen to the public from Wednesday 5 August 2020 with a number of safety measures in place.

The Stained Glass Museum has acquired the Visit Britain ‘We’re Good to Go’ Industry Standard mark, which means that it has followed government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, has undertaken a rigorous Risk Assessment and has procedures in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.

In March 2020, like so many other organisations and charities, the Stained Glass Museum closed its doors to the thousands of visitors it welcomes each year losing up to 90% of its usual income. Since the government announcement that museums and heritage sites could reopen, staff have been hard at work to make the necessary adjustments to begin welcoming visitors back from Wednesday 5 August (on reduced opening hours).

Reduced opening hours from 5 August 2020
Wednesday – Saturday 10:30-15:30

The museum’s summer opening hours (during August) will be Wednesday-Saturday, 10:30am-3.30pm. Tickets for the museum will be available on the door in limited numbers. Visitors who wish to visit Ely Cathedral and The Stained Glass Museum should pre-book a combined ticket online or on the phone from Ely Cathedral.

With a designated one-way route around the museum, enhanced cleaning and the removal of hands-on activities within the galleries, visitors can once again enjoy a safe, welcoming and enjoyable visit to the museum.

Visitors are encouraged to visit the museum’s website to find out more about guidance for all visitors, and any additional safety measures we have put in place.
