Guildford Museum will temporarily close from 3 June 2019 for planned essential maintenance during summer and autumn 2019. We will be out and about, with lots of exciting events around the borough. Activities like Coffee Time Talks, Saturday Family Fun and Finds Identification will take place in Guildford House Gallery on Guildford High Street. You can also see our online museum collection at www.guildford.gov.uk/museumcollection. The essential work is part of the Council’s investment in the museum’s future. It must be carried out now to safeguard the collections and exhibits and will be taken into account in any future redevelopment. Look out for more information and updates on our website at www.guildford.gov.uk/museum.
