Low Parks Museum Reopens from 10 August 2020

Low Parks Museum closed in March as part of the Covid-19 lockdown measures but it has been a busy five months. Our staff have been providing online activities and glimpses of exhibition and display items via our facebook pages.  They also provided an ongoing service for local / family / military history enquiries, and continued with the digitisation of our collections.

We are now in Phase 3 of the Scottish Government's route map out of lockdown, which permits museums to open. Hygiene and safety measures have been put in place, and we are delighted to say that Low Parks Museum will reopen from Monday 10 August. Some familiar friends have been given a wee rest temporarily, but we will have new family quizzes and trails around the museum and new displays and exhibitions for you to enjoy. Before visiting the Museum, please download and print your activities sheet for Time Detectives quiz and Eclectech Gallery Selfie Scavenger Hunt if you want to participate in these activities. You can also pick up our Route 74 Heritage Trail from Low Parks Museum to Chatelherault or download the app on your phone with our free Wi-Fi.

The gift shop will have restrictions in place limiting the number of people in the shop at any time and will operate a card payment only system.  It is hoped that the Mezzanine Café will reopen later this month.

David Booth, General Manager of South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture, said: “Credit must go to our dedicated staff for working so hard to ensure that despite the museum being closed for so long, the public have still been able to enjoy many of our exhibits and other services online.

“But we are now ready and delighted to be able to physically welcome everyone back to our museum in line with Phase 3 of the Scottish Government’s route map allowing physical access to museums.

“Following a review of the museum building a reception screen has been installed along with sanitising stations, staff PPE and increased cleaning.

“The museum exhibitions and displays have been adjusted to enable physical distancing and public access. The exhibition programme for the year has also been reduced or reconfigured to enable the museum to remain open under the current coronavirus guidelines.”

We cannot wait to welcome our visiting public back!
