THE STAINED GLASS MUSEUM
The Stained Glass Museum is currently closed
The Stained Glass Museum has now closed its doors until at least the 2nd December as we enter a second nationwide lockdown.
This is the second time the museum has had to close this year. Though, despite this closure of our gallery, we will continue to connect with audiences around the world via social media and intend to reopen as soon as we can!
Since we rely on the income we make from admissions, events, workshops, and shop sales to care for our collection and pay our staff, it has been an extremely challenging time for us. We have been fortunate to benefit from a number of emergency grants, but had not anticipated a second closure so soon.
There are several ways you can support us from a distance during these challenging times, by making an online donation or purchase, or joining our Friends organisation.
