Visitor Notice

Focusing on the health and wellbeing of our staff and customers remains our top priority. In line with national guidance and government recommendations we will close Harborough Museum effective from 5pm on Wednesday 4 November.

Closing our museum, along with other heritage attractions across the nation, will mean tougher times ahead for those working in the tourism industry. We ask that you continue to support our attraction by rearranging your visit for later in the year or make use of our online catalogues and resources.

We’re all in this together and will make sure our approach continues to reflect the latest government guidelines. Keep up to date by visiting: and follow our social media channels to hear the latest from us.
