The British Motor Museum reopened its doors to visitors for the first time since March on Saturday (July 4), having received its ‘Good to Go’ industry standard mark from Visit England.

Initially, the museum will only welcome visitors from Friday to Monday as part of a phased reopening plan. Numbers will be limited so anyone planning to visit, including annual pass holders, will need to book in advance via the website and chose a timed arrival slot. Annual passes and gift tickets have automatically been extended by four months from their expiry date.

Risk assessments have been carried out and all the necessary measures put in place, including safety screens and contactless payment at all pay points, hand sanitiser stations, social distancing reminders and markers, one-way entrance/exit and enhanced cleaning regimes. A guidance video for visitors has been made available on the museum’s website.

Managing Director Jeff Coope said: “We are delighted to be reopening the museum. The team has been working incredibly hard over the past few weeks to ensure we are able to reopen safely and we look forward to welcoming our visitors back so they can enjoy our fabulous collections again.”
