Transport Museum reopens this weekend


Ipswich Transport Museum will be opening again this winter.

They’re going to be opening from 1pm to 4 pm on:
• Sundays 6th, 13th, 20th December 2020 and 3rd January 2021
• Wednesdays 23rd and 30th December 2020
• Monday 28th December 2020
The museum will then close for the winter period and re-open in the spring. 2021 dates will be confirmed in the near future.
The Museum will be operating under COVID-safe rules, including a one way system.
Visitors will need to wear face masks, and helpful signs on the floor will remind people to stay socially distanced. The number of visitors in the Museum at one time will be carefully monitored and regulated, so there may be some queuing. Hand sanitiser stations have been installed around the Museum, and the Museum will be deep-cleaned regularly to
ensure everyone’s safety.
To ensure the museum is COVID-safe, visitors will unfortunately not be allowed to board any of our vehicles, and to maintain social distancing, the children’s activity area remains temporarily closed, and the Sunbeam Tea Room will not be open. We’ll continue to deploy extra staff will to help visitors navigate this modified museum layout and enjoy the many
local transport and engineering objects.

Bob Mellor, Chairman of the Ipswich Transport Museum Council of Management, said:
“I thank our visitors, volunteers and supporters for their patience and understanding during the 2020 season. We have successfully operated the museum during September and October, and hope that December will provide a bit of seasonal cheer for our visitors and
volunteers. It has been a difficult time for everyone, but at least can once again open our doors so everyone can enjoy our magnificent exhibits”.
