Visitors to Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery will find changes taking place between October 1st and 24th when they visit. The installation of new double glazed windows to replace the old wooden windows will be taking place, forcing some temporary gallery closures. Changing to double glazing will help to make the building more energy efficient and help to reduce its carbon footprint by around half a tonne each year. The museum is part of a Reducing Bills: Greening Museums Programme taking place across the West Midlands and has already reduced its energy usage by shifting to LED lights.
A programme of room closures appears below though these may be subject to change.
October 1st – October 24th George Eliot Gallery
October 1st – October 24th Picture Gallery
October 2nd – October 24th Local History Gallery
The museum will close entirely save the tearoom October 21st to October 23rd. For up to date information people can log onto the museum’s facebook page, facebook.com/nuneatonmuseum
