Change to opening hours at The Wilson, Art Gallery & Museum


The Cheltenham Trust and Cheltenham Borough Council have agreed to the closure of The Wilson Museum and Art Gallery to the public on Mondays.

The Wilson Shop, the Tourist Information desk and The Wilson café will remain open on Mondays.  This change will come into effect from Monday 6th August 2018.

This closure will enable The Cheltenham Trust to offer increased opportunities for hires, special events, group tours and school visits on these days.

Sarah Cook, Corporate Manager said: “This will help us to meet the needs of our audiences by offering a quality ‘behind the scenes’ experience. In addition this will free up time for any other museum and art gallery related project work and staff training that has been limited by full public access over seven days. ”

The Monday closure is in line with other national and European institutions that close on a Monday for back of house work.
