Following recent government announcements easing lockdown, Walsall Leather Museum is preparing to open its doors again on Wednesday 5 August 2020. This is planned as the first phase of re-opening safely, with a strong focus on the safety of all visitors, staff and museum volunteers. As of 8 August all visitors to the borough’s Museum and Galleries will also be expected to wear face coverings, unless exempt from doing so. 

The Leather Museum and the New Art Gallery will both be re-opening on the same day, marking the start of summer visitor attractions in Walsall.
