The Horniman will reopen its doors from 30 July 2020 offering up an extended run of the Permian Monsters exhibition (till 3 January 2021), alongside the popular galleries of natural history, world cultures and musical instruments.
The main café will reopen at the same time, and additional facilities such as toilets, Café Kiosks in the Gardens and the Sunday Market have been open for some time. The Horniman Gardens have remained open throughout the museum’s 134-day closure.
Some attractions will remain closed initially, including the Aquarium and Butterfly House, and some interactive exhibits have been removed or covered up.
Social distancing and other safety measures will be in place throughout the Museum, including hand sanitisation stations, an enhanced cleaning regime, updated signage and a one-way visitor route.
Visitors, including members, will need to pre-book for a free, timed entry slot at horniman.ac.uk (available from Monday 20 July).
