We are open – Welcome, Welcome!!!

THE ANOKHI MUSEUM OF HAND PRINTING IS WELCOMING VISITORS AGAIN!

 

Even during a pandemic we have been busy working behind the scenes. We have some gallery changes coming, a new book with an accompanying exhibition, plus a renewed focus on fashion of the hippie era.

Of course, in these unusual times , the well-being of our visitors and staff is our top priority. We have made some important changes to keep you safe during your visit.

 

  • For the time being we will not being booking large groups or offering private tours with any staff members. This is to ensure visitor numbers are limited and effective social distancing measures can be taken to keep everyone safe.

 

  • Signs will guide you on a one-way route through the building to minimise close encounters with other visitors. Please help us in our efforts by keeping a safe distance at all times.

 

  • Staff will be wearing face masks. We strongly recommend all visitors also wear a face covering while at the museum.

 

  • Hand sanitiser is available at the entrance to the building and in other key areas, and we follow an increased and thorough cleansing regime in the toilets.

 

  • A visit would not be complete without some retail therapy! The shop is open for browsing through an assortment of beautiful hand crafted items.  To ensure a safe and enjoyable shopping experience, we are limiting the number of customers into the shop at any one time.

 

  • Relax and take in the sights and sounds of Amber village while sitting in the museum forecourt. Our open-air Drinks Kiosk presently offers a limited menu of bottled water, tea, coffee and lime & ginger cordial.

 

  • Please check our visit page for information on  our opening hours and how to find the museum.  Changes in government guidelines may affect timings so we recommend you contact us before your visit to confirm we are open.

 

We hope you enjoy your time at the Anokhi Museum!
