Exhibitions reopen at Fairfield Museum and Gallery

Exhibition spaces have reopened to the public at the Fairfield City Museum and Gallery with government COVID-19 safety protocols in place.

Fairfield mayor Frank Carbone said visitor numbers will be capped, movement through spaces will be carefully managed and large group tours will not be permitted.

While exhibition spaces and the Vintage Village are open, the Machinery shed, Public programs, Living the Past education program and Group tours remain closed.

"The Fairfield City Museum and Gallery is more than just a place where you can visit to see art. It's a place where you can learn all about our city's history and culture in a fun and relaxed way," Mayor Carbone said.

"I know that our staff are looking forward to welcoming the community back into the exhibition spaces again. We are confident that this can be done safely while observing all the necessary precautions.

"I thank everyone for their hard work in helping reduce the risk of COVID-19 in our community and for their patience as we reopen our services in stages."

All spaces will be signposted with the maximum occupancy allowed in that area to ensure people are not gathering around exhibits in large numbers.
