Back to the future: Waterford’s Medieval Museum to reopen its doors tomorrow
Waterford’s award-winning Medieval Museum will reopen it’s doors to the public on June 29 at 09:15 am.
“We will have new procedures for social distancing, hygiene and visitor interaction,” a statement from museum says.
“It might be unusual to see a staff in a face mask and gloves, but the safety of our staff and guests will be paramount. Staff members who will be closer to visitors will be wearing PPE.
“We have a full hygiene policy that will be strictly followed by all staff to ensure the highest standards of cleanliness throughout the museum.
“When you need to interact with the staff member on the admissions desk, they will call you forward.
“There is a high plastic screen between you and the staff member, with a small gap at the bottom through which items can be passed. Please do ask the admissions staff member if you have any queries or concerns – they are there to help!”
The museum is the country’s only purpose-built medieval museum and the only building on the island to incorporate two medieval chambers, the 13th century Choristers’ Hall and the 15th century Mayor’s Wine Vault.
