  • Museum Questions around #LockDown and opening

    May 4th, 2020mardixonCulture

    With some countries starting to ‘open’ again I have some questions. I’m sure it’ll be different depending on the size of the museum/gallery and indeed the procedures and policies will be different country to country but thought it would be good to have a conversation around them.

    • What does a re-open look like?
    • Will staff (and eventually visitors) have their temperature monitored?
    • Will the museum have a deep clean and what does that involve?
    • Will you keep the interactives and touch screens or change the policy around them (eg will visitors need to wear gloves)?
    • Will all staff be coming back?
    • What changes can we expect in cafes and shops?
    • What difference will be made to Front of House if any?

    I’m sure I’ll have more questions but just wanted to say how amazing all staff have been throughout this ordeal. Furlough staff still volunteering, other staff keeping content online going, others just checking in and making sure anxiety levels stayed low. It’s a great sector to be involved with!

    Stay safe!
