East Surrey Museum
Information for those visiting during the ongoing pandemic

Updated 30th November 2021

The museum's management committee, stewards and other volunteers have been working hard to ensure that the museum complies with all government guidance, and that your visit will be as safe as it possibly could be. Surfaces likely to be touched by visitors and staff will be regularly sanitized, the number of visitors in each room of the museum at any one time will be limited, each room in the Museum will be well ventilated, and the air quality continually monitored.

When you enter the museum a volunteer steward will greet you and provide all the information you will need for your visit, while others will be on hand to make sure everything runs smoothly. However, there are a few things you need to know in advance.

1. In line with government guidance, it is essential that adults and children over 11 wear a face mask when inside the museum.  Hand sanitizer is also freely available for all visitors to use.
2. Each visitor over 16 is encouraged to scan the NHS QR test and trace code if you have the phone app installed.
3. Visitors should try to maintain a distance from people they do not live withAt busy times, visitor numbers in each gallery will be limited.
4. If there are children in your group, please be aware that objects (toys, books, clothes, etc.) in the children's room are available for play, however if used please deposit in the box provided and the stewards will ensure they are made safe for the next visitors.
5. For donations to the museum, and purchases from the shop, contactless payment is preferred but not essential.

We sincerely hope that this will not put you off visiting the museum. You can be assured of an especially warm welcome!  If you have any questions, please do call or email us.
