Bodmin Keep Winter Closure

Bodmin Keep in the Snow

The museum will be closing its doors from 19th December, until February half-term. Following a challenging year, with two rounds of enforced closure due to Covid 19, we are very much looking forward to a fresh New Year!

During the closed period the museum team will be busy working on new displays and creating outreach resources for schools, and there will still be plenty on offer via the museum’s website and social media.  There will also be three new young members of staff joining the museum in mid-January; a Customer Service Apprentice, a Trainee Curator and a Digital Intern.  They will help the museum to offer a great experience for visitors during 2021, with exciting activities and events for the local community. 

Museum Director Mary Godwin said,

‘We’ve decided to close for the quietest time of the winter this year to enable us to refresh the museum galleries and get ready for what we hope will be a great year in 2021.  We’re as committed as ever to providing educational and fun activities for all ages and in particular, we’ll be promoting our exciting new loans boxes for schools and colleges from January onwards.  There’ll be a warm welcome back for everyone on 16th February when things get off to a flying start at half term with authentic Second World War re-enactment.
