Wrexham Museum to re-open tomorrow with new social distancing guidelines
Wrexham’s Museum is set to re-open tomorrow for the first time since the coronavirus lockdown was introduced.
It comes after First Minister Mark Drakeford confirmed that the likes of cinemas and museums can now open their doors to the public again.

– There will be hand sanitiser at the entrance to the building. All visitors will be asked to clean their hands on arrival.
– All visitors will be asked for their contact details to support the government’s ‘Test, Trace and Protect’ programme.
– Wrexham Council recommends visitors wearing face masks while in the galleries.
– There will be a limit on numbers in the galleries so that social distancing will be possible for all our visitors.
– A one-way system throughout the galleries. Look out for the floor signs for directions.
– For families, there will be a new children’s trail to help guide younger visitors (and their accompanying adults) during their visit.
