Migration Museum closed until further notice

The Migration Museum will be closed to the public for at least four weeks from Thursday 5 November 2020, in line with the new government regulations requiring all entertainment venues, including museums, to close until at least 2 December in response to the rapid rise in the number of Coronavirus (Covid-19) cases across London and the rest of the UK.

Having only recently reopened and launched our new exhibition, Departures, we are closing our doors again with a heavy heart. We were so excited to welcome you back and to share our new exhibition with you – and we hope to be able to reopen again safely soon, in line with government and public health regulations and guidance.

Although our museum will remain closed until further notice, there are still plenty of ways you can engage with us via our digital exhibition Heart of the Nation: Migration and the Making of the NHS, our website and on social media. We will be announcing more details about upcoming digital and social media content and activities soon, as well as online education resources and workshops, so sign up to our mailing list and follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to be the first to know.

In the meantime, we know that these are difficult and concerning times for everyone. Let’s all take care, stay safe and look after each other.

All the best,

The Migration Museum team
