Parham Airfield Museum

Re-opening with COVID 19 Precautions


The museum will re-open on Wednesdays starting 2nd June 2021, between 11am and 4pm.

Admission numbers will be limited and by advanced booking only.  Please email parhamairfield@yahoo.co.uk giving the size of your party and expected arrival time.  Our email reply, if we can accommodate you, will be your admission ticket.  You will need to bring it with you. Please note that we are not permitted to book groups of more than 6.

These booking arrangements will be reviewed when it is clear what regulations the government intends to introduce from 21st June.

Our aim is to make the visitor experience as near normal as possible.  Thorough risk assessments have been conducted and various measures will be in place to ensure the safety of visitors and volunteer staff.  Our COVID 19 Risk Assessment can be viewed on www.parhamairfieldmuseum.co.uk

Please expect these precautions:

  • Drivers should proceed past the Tower and park in the visitor car park, avoiding grass areas.
  • Entrance will be via the new ramp bordered with white concrete hoops leading to the Moller Building, café and shop.
  • Everyone is required to wear a mask or visor unless they have a medical exemption.
  • Each visitor over 16 is required to give their details for NHS Test and Trace.
  • Some constricted areas in the museum, such as the new cinema, will be temporarily closed.
  • If we are busy, you may be asked to wait before some areas can be accessed.
  • Social distancing will be expected, except between family bubbles.
  • Staff will be on duty to promote the safety of visitors and volunteers.
  • We plan to open the café and shop.  Refreshments may be consumed inside or outdoors.
  • Hand sanitisers will be provided, and touching items & displays will be discouraged.

Please watch our website, www.parhamairfieldmuseum.co.uk, or twitter @ParhamMuseum for updates on opening arrangements.

We look forward to welcoming you to share our new building and upgraded exhibitions!
