The Fairfield City Museum & Gallery is now open to public visits with government COVID-19 safety protocols in place.

Visitor numbers will be capped, movement through spaces will be carefully managed and large group tours will not be permitted.

Fairfield City Mayor Frank Carbone said the wellbeing of staff and the community is Council’s top priority.

“The Fairfield City Museum & 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.”

Staff are strictly following government regulations ensuring social distancing is adhered to and good hygiene is maintained.

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