All aboard – for the reopening of a local treasure!

I’m pleased to be able to gradually announce the reopening of local attractions and facilities as they happen, following closures for the pandemic response – and how strange it is to type that even still!

One of the most welcome will be the Aston Manor Road Transport Museum, based in Aldridge, which has announced reopening is to take place on Tuesday 11th August 2020 at 10:30am.

Initially opening will be Tuesdays only, and the museum will remain closed all other days including at weekends – but it is hoped that normal hours can be resumed by the end of August.

Even Salvage Hunters paid the museum a call! Image from the Museum Facebook page.

Restrictions to enable social distancing will be in place, and sadly there’s had to be a slight entry fee increase, but at at £4 for an adult, £11 for a family and kids entry staying at £2 it’s still cracking value.

The museum management posted on Facebook:

[See above for our] initial announcement of reopening – watch this page for further notices and updates.

We are not planning any events in the immediate future, but will continue to assess the situation as time goes on.

Although we are looking at the possibility of some static events – watch this space!

Welcome back to all at the museum and I wish everyone well. Please do get over and support this gem of a local museum. It really is a fascinating place.
