Ensuring everyone’s safety

Moving towards the future, we have taken the decision to continue our enhanced procedures at the Museum beyond the 30 November 2021. Our highest priority remains keeping you and our dedicated team of staff safe. We want your visit to us to be a relaxing and enjoyable experience.

The below recommendations remain in place and will be reviewed at regular intervals.

Masks and face coverings

Our staff will be wearing masks and maintaining social distance throughout your event.

Whilst you and your colleagues explore the Museum’s collection and public rooms, we recommend that face masks are worn if you and your team feel comfortable in doing so.

Enhanced hygiene

Automatic hand sanitiser dispensers have been installed throughout the museum and our staff will regularly clean and disinfect door handles, taps, lift buttons and surfaces. We will also be naturally ventilating all meeting and event spaces throughout your hire period.

NHS Test and Trace Guidelines

Although it is no longer a legal requirement for venues to display an NHS QR code or request that customers, visitors and staff ‘check in’, this is still encouraged in order to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus.

If you or your team have any concerns or would like to discuss our safety measures in further detail, please don’t hesitate to contact a member of our dedicated events team by calling:  020 78413 616 or by emailing: events@foundlingmuseum.org.uk

Thank you for choosing to host your event at the Foundling Museum.
