| | ,

Marlow Museum will re-open soon, which is great news!! Here’s all the detail direct from the Museum:

We are pleased to announce that the Museum will reopen, with full anti-Covid precautions, on Saturday September 5th from 1-5pm and thereafter at our normal Summer opening times (Saturdays and
Sundays 1-5pm and Wednesdays 2-5pm.)

During July and August, Museum volunteers have

  • undertaken a Covid-19 Risk Assessment, following government guidelines;
  • deep cleaned the museum – you might smell Dettol when you visit!
  • set up new procedures for operating safely in the current circumstances, including asking volunteers and visitors to wear masks and use hand sanitiser, a one-way system and social distancing, with no more than 4 visitors in the museum at once, and track and trace recording.
  • introduced contactless card payments for sales and donations;
  • recruited and trained many new volunteer stewards;
  • been awarded the Visit England ‘We’re Good to Go’ badge for tourist sites.

Our current exhibition is ‘The Story of Marlow’, an illustrated history from 5,000 years ago to the present.
As well as a selection of local artefacts, we will also have a display on ‘The Vansittart Family’ of Bisham Abbey.

During lockdown, our website and social media have been showing key ‘Objects in Focus’ from our collection, ranging from General Higginson’s drum to ‘Wind in the Willows’. Look them up on

We look forward to seeing you again when you are able to visit!
