North Weald Airfield Museum is now open,At a recent Trustees meeting, re-opening of the museum was discussed. Most of the Museum Trustees are over the age of seventy and followed Government Guidelines in being in isolation throughout recent months.It was agreed that with careful planning, the museum could open providing all Government guidelines were followed to become Covid-19 Secure. A new way of operating was agreed to ensure the safety of public and volunteers alike. A pre-booking system will be employed along with pre-payment. Payment will be made by via PayPal (all credit cards can be used without the need to have a PayPal account). After each group visit the museum will be sanitised with clinically approved sanitising agents to ensure your safe visit to the museum. A limit of 55 minutes per visit was agreed to allow for the cleaning and multiple visits in a day with time slots starting on the hour. No more than six people per group.Due to the high costs involved, along with the fact that the museum relies on donations and entrance fee only to survive, an entrance fee of £5 per person with £2.50 concessions was agreed. The museum opened at the start of August and aims to continue throughout the year, into 2021. Please note, the museum will close on 13th December 2020 and re-open on 16 January 2021. Opening over the winter months is dependant on the weather as volunteers come from some distance. Should the museum close due to weather your entrance will be credited and another date booked at your convenience.Opening options are: Wednesdays (new), Saturdays and Sundays. We will try and book you on your requested time slot but some alteration may be necessary, we ask for your understanding on this.To satisfy government guidelines on trace and track we will require details of one member of each party (name, address, phone number and email address).
