Early closure of the Museum.
It is with great sadness that we have had to close the Maldon Musuem to the public early this year due a small issue on a recent Fire Risk Assessment of the Museum. Whilst it is believed that there would have continued to be minimal risk to the health and safety of both staff and visitors, it was agreed at a recent meeting of the Museum's Committee Members that the Museum be closed early to address the issue as soon as possible. What with our closing date for winter coming up at the end of October, it was decided with great deliberance that this had to be but we do feel that it was the right thing as no matter how small the issue might be, the health and safety and welfare of our volunteers and of course our visitors remains the Museum's highest priority. However please do keep an eye out on our Website and Social Media platforms though for when this issue is solved, out of hour Group visits will be available again during our close season (see our Contact Us page for details). Thank you for all of your wonderful support over this last year and we will see you again in the Spring!
BBC Essex Quest come searching!
BBC Essex Quest team stopped by for a visit during their most recent Essex Quest on Sunday 16th of September. Barry and Lianna had a great little visit with a wonderful interview with the brilliant Harriet Crawford, our Accessions Officer, about some of the items we have on display.
Escape Games on Tuesday and Sunday evenings
The escape room craze has come to the museum courtesy of The Escape Network, who have created a new game specifically for the museum. Called “The Park Keeper’s Child’, the game is a work of fiction based on the museum building that was once the home of the park keeper for Promenade Park. Teams are invited to investigate newly found information, crack codes and solve puzzles to discover the fate of the park keeper and his child, and escape the museum before the time runs out.
The Escape Network will be running regular games at the museum on Tuesday and Sunday evenings. Games are for up to 6 players and cost £65 per team. To book a session all you need do is visit www.TheEscapeNetwork.co.uk
