Museum Reopening 2021
Museum Reopening 2021
Following yesterday's announcement, the Museum will re-open to the public on 17th May 2021. Due to staffing issues the museum will initially only be opening from Monday to Friday. There is no need to pre-book. It may be advisable to phone the Museum beforehand if you are travelling a long distance on the day of your visit to check opening times. Regular updates on dates and timings will be posted on the website.

As before, we will be opening in a COVID secure manner and new instructions regarding Track and Trace means we will be asking for details of all visitors and not just one member of each group.

You can contact the Museum by phone or email at 01822 322130 or HMPDartmoormuseum@justice.gov.uk
