We are following the advice of the Department of Culture and Tourism, as well as the Ministry of Education in making every effort to help ensure visits are enjoyable, entertaining and, above all, safe. We ask you to work with us to keep the gallery a safe place for all visitors and our staff by carefully reading the guidelines below.

  • In line with government guidelines, all visitors aged 12 and above must show a ‘Green’ status on the Alhosn app to enter.
  • If the Alhosn app is not available, visitors must present a vaccination certificate alongside a 14 day PCR test. Note: If eligible, visitors must have received a booster 6 months after their second dose.
  • Disposable masks (surgical or medical procedure masks), KN95, KF94, or N95 masks must be worn at all times. Note: Cloth masks, if not accompanied by one of the above, are not acceptable.
  • A temperature check will take place on entry. If you show any symptom of illness, such as a fever, coughing, or shortness of breath, unfortunately, we won’t be able to let you into the gallery
  • Brochures and guides will be available digitally, as well as physically upon request.
  • Bag check is temporarily closed; therefore, we encourage you to leave your valuables, large bags and other personal belongings at home or in your car. Large backpacks must be carried at your front to avoid putting artworks at risk. When worn, backpacks extend your personal space, making accidents more likely.
  • External food and drink (with the exception of water bottles) are not permitted inside the Museum
  • Strollers of regular sizes are allowed in the space. Oversized strollers will not be permitted for the safety of the art on display.
