Face coverings are mandatory for anyone over the age of 12. Everyone must disinfect their hands when they arrive at the Museum.
To respect the recommended social distancing rules, the Museum will provide a smaller mediator-to-student ratio for your groups at no extra charge. Each class will be divided into three, and each sub-group will have its own mediator. Part of your group may therefore be in a separate room (but will not join another class). However, all groups will stay close together and you can move easily from group to group.
It is recommended that each sub-group have a supervisor. Two adult supervisors are therefore required in addition to the teacher.
Mediators, teachers and students must keep a distance of 2 metres apart in accordance with public health requirements.
Activities led by museum staff
To book an activity with an MMFA guide or mediator, you must contact us at least three weeks in advance. The earlier you book, the greater your choice of activities.
