A HERITAGE museum has reopened its doors after four months of closure.

Amberley Museum reopened to the public yesterday, welcoming families to look at its fascinating collection of trains and industrial gadgets.

Staff have put rigorous social distancing measures in place, including one-way systems in larger exhibitions and one-family limits in some of the site’s smaller buildings.

The museum opened to members only over the weekend and is now raring to reopen to more visitors, said marketing officer Caymen O’Reilly.

“We have been working hard getting ready for reopening for several weeks and it’s a huge relief that it went so well,” she said.

“We look forward to continuing to welcome families and visitors back for the rest of the summer and then on to our winter season.”
