A Better Year For The Museum - 2021
Press Release - August 2021
This year has been a better year than expected for Tavistock Museum. Furthermore the museum has proved resilient against a number of challenges.
The first challenge came as a result of the prolonged closure of the public passageway beneath Court Gate on account of infrastructure work in the Guildhall Square. This adversely affected our sales income. However, in mid-April this year we re-started our second-hand book sales which has surpassed its former popularity now the passageway is open again.
The second challenge has been the pandemic itself. The Museum Trust has and will always put the safety of its volunteers as a first priority and for this reason the museum has not re-opened to the public. However our volunteers have used the time of closure to clean, paint and generally regenerate the museum with the objective of re-opening our two main galleries as soon as safe to do so.
