After being closed for 465 days, the John Bunyan Museum and Library reopened to the public yesterday (Tuesday) with an exciting programme of events to look forward to this year.
Later this summer the museum will be celebrating its 75th anniversary with events including a Summer Exhibition of art in collaboration with Basement@Bunyan from 10 – 28 August.
The Basement has reopened this week with Bedford College art students displaying their end of year show. Entry is free and limited to 12 visitors at a time.
To ensure the safety of all visitors to the museum, new measures have been added, including a one-way system and a contactless donation point.
“We’ve introduced a pre-booking system, courtesy of Art Tickets, so you can reserve a time that suits you,” said a musuem spokesperson.
“Walk-in visitors are also welcome but please be aware we may have to ask you to wait if the museum is full.”
During the summer holidays, the museum’s Crafty Thursdays will resume, with activities for children from 11am – 3pm from 29 July – 2 September. Sessions cost £2 per child.
