On Saturday 21st March, The True CRIME Museum shut down for business following the government announcement to close hospitality venues due to Covid-19 Coronavirus.
Curator, Joel Griggs says, “It couldn’t have hit Hastings tourism businesses at a worse time, right at the start of the peak tourist season, it was a very dark time for us, we were so unsure as to whether the Museum would ever re-open again!”
Thanks to the government furlough and small business grant schemes, as well as fantastic support from their loyal staff and customers The True CRIME Museum is now looking forward to welcoming visitors again, however, this will be quite a different experience than what previous customers would have been used to. The True CRIME Museum’s Covid-19 Coronavirus safety measures:
Curator, Joel Griggs says, “We’re doing everything we can to help keep the Museum safe and clean for our staff and customers”
The True CRIME Museum Team have been busy preparing to reopen for Saturday 4th July 2020 and are now approved under Visit Britain’s “We’re Good To Go” which is the official UK mark to signal that a tourism and hospitality business has worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and has a process in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.
Assistant Curator, Emma Shaw says, “Many customers have been getting in touch prior to their visit to ask if they need to book, there is no need, you can just turn up any time, we have a system in place to monitor capacity, our original customer experience route has been altered to accommodate social distancing, at busier periods there may be a short wait to enter, or we can suggest a quieter return time.”
Curator, Joel Griggs says, “We can’t wait to get back to business, and look forward to welcoming guests from Saturday 10am”
The True CRIME Museum is open daily from 10am-5pm, and welcomes everyone who is fascinated the dark world of crime!
