We are thrilled to finally open to the public as of the 1st of October 2020. After being closed since the beginning of lockdown in March and we have certainly missed having visitors in the museum. The calls of the public have been heard as they have been anticipating this opening. For now, we will open only on weekdays, Monday - Friday from 9h00 - 15h30. We will remain closed on weekends and public holidays. The Museum's internet cafe will also open on weekdays only. Our visitor’s safety is our priority, therefore; we will admit a limited number of visitors numbers at a time. All Covid19 protocols will apply, visitors will be screened on entry, wearing of masks is compulsory and we will ensure strict social distancing of all visitors.
To add to the excitement of opening the large insects that adorn the front facade of the Museum is also getting a much-needed facelift. The insects are getting painted and I am sure the public will enjoy the new look!
