We miss you!
Your safety is at the heart of everything that we do. So, we’re working really hard behind the scenes making The Silk Museum & Paradise Mill safe for visitors for when we re-open, in line with Government directives.
We do not currently have dates for re-opening The Silk Museum and Paradise Mill. We are going through a detailed planning and risk assessment process that will involve consultation with all our staff and volunteers as well as working out the additional costs for all the safety measures that will be in place. Each building presents its own challenges and we will have a phased approach for their re-opening.
We will have to put in place new safety procedures for us to meet social distancing guidelines – including online ticketing. When we re-open you’ll have to pre book before visiting the The Silk Museum or Paradise Mill.
As we prepare for gradual re-opening we’ll share all these safety measures with you on our website and social media channels and answer any questions you may have.
When we have a firm date for re-opening, we’ll keep you informed through our website, mailing list and social media.
In the meantime, if you have any queries regarding your future visit to The Silk Museum, please email us at [email protected] and we’ll be happy to help.
With best wishes from us all.
