A SPECIAL experience is being promised to people visiting the Brontë Parsonage Museum following its reopening next month.

Timed entry tickets and protective screens will be part of new measures to ensure the safety of visitors and staff amidst the Covid-19 pandemic.

Rebecca Yorke, the museum’s Head of Communications and marketing, said: “The timed tickets will ensure that social distancing between different families or groups of visitors can be maintained.

“This will result in a very special experience, as visitors will effectively have different parts of the house to themselves as they move through the building.

“The route through the museum is already one way, but we will be making some changes to the layout of the shop to ensure that visitors have enough room to browse safely and at leisure.

“It’s very important to us that our staff and visitors feel safe, but we also want people to feel relaxed and able to enjoy the time they are in the museum, so we are taking time to ensure that everything is in place before we open our doors to the public.”
