Our Covid-19 visiting measures

Visitors will be able to follow floor markings to help them move around the collection, and we are asking visitors to keep left and move in a clockwise direction, and to always keep two metres away from others. The length of an average visit is approximately 2 to 3 hours, during which time it is possible to see a wide range of objects in the collection.

Our staff will be wearing face coverings for everyone's safety, and we require our visitors to do the same.

The Fitzwilliam Museum has been awarded the Visit Britain We’re Good to Go Industry Standard mark. This means we have followed government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, have a Risk Assessment in place and a process to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.

Museums and galleries now have a legal duty to have to have systems in place to obtain contact details of everyone over 16 years old for NHS Test and Trace, and to display the QR code ​poster for the NHS Test and Trace App. In line with government guidance, please be aware that when you visit the museum, you will need to either scan the NHS Test and Trace app or provide the name and contact details for everyone in your party over the age of 16.

If you are using the Museum's Courtyard Café operated by Tate Eats, please note that everyone's contact details for NHS Test and Trace must now be collected separately for Café patrons, and you are legally required to provide these details either through the system provided by Tate Eats or by scanning the NHS QR code. Café staff are legally required to refuse service to any prospective Café patron who refuses to do this.

Naturally the situation may change at short notice, and we will be following the latest government guidelines at all times, so please check back here before your visit for the most up-to-date visitor information.
