Following on from the successful re-opening of Waterford’s Medieval Museum, the Georgian Bishop’s Palace will re-open its doors to the public on Monday next, July 13 at 9:15am, with the King of the Vikings 3D Adventure re-opening at 11am that morning  – until 5pm.

According to a Museum spokesperson: “We will have new procedures for social distancing, hygiene and visitor interaction in accordance with the HSE guidelines.

“It might be unusual to see a team member or any of our Vikings in a face mask and gloves, but the safety of our staff and guests will be paramount. Team members who will be closer to visitors will be wearing PPE.

“We have a full hygiene policy that will be strictly followed by all team members to ensure the highest standards of cleanliness throughout all of the Waterford Treasures sites.”

The spokesperson added: “When you need to interact with the team member on the admissions desk, they will call you forward. There is a plastic screen between you and the team member, with a small gap at the bottom through which items can be passed. Please do ask the admissions team member if you have any queries or concerns – they are there to help! We will monitor how the new procedures work keeping your safety in mind at all times.”
