No need to book to visit Exeter’s Royal Albert Memorial Museum

Published: 10 December 2020

RAMM Reopening No need to book tickets for RAMM

Exeter’s Royal Albert Memorial Museum (RAMM) can now be visited without pre-booking a ticket.

Visitors to the museum, the Shop at RAMM and the Museum café can now drop in without having to book on ahead.

The RAMM was closed during the country’s second ‘lockdown’ but reopened again on Thursday 3 December. Staff soon realised that RAMM could operate in a safe way without needing people to book tickets.

Now local people and Christmas shoppers will once again be able to pop in to the Shop at RAMM to pick up cards and gifts, or grab a coffee at the café away from the busy city centre, without having to plan out their visit beforehand.

RAMM introduced its pre-booking system back in October, following the museum’s reopening after the first lockdown. The system allowed staff to limit visitor numbers and record track and trace information, and was implemented along with a one-way system throughout the building as part of a range of Covid-19 safety measures.

Cllr Amal Ghusain, Lead Councillor for Communities and Culture, said: “RAMM is a place people can come to recharge, away from some of the stresses of modern life. It provides a fantastic space to learn and relax, where we can shift into a lower gear and take in objects and art from around the world.

“I’m delighted that the people of Exeter will once again be able to drop into RAMM for a quick visit or shopping trip, with confidence that they will be protected by robust Covid measures.”

Visitors to RAMM will also find new exhibitions, displays and artwork opening during December, such as Michelle Williams Gamaker’s film The Silver Wave, and the Local Art Show featuring Double Elephant print workshop.

Tickets will no longer be needed to visit RAMM from Thursday 10 December, although existing bookings will still be honoured. Museum staff will continue to monitor and manage visitor numbers, and the one-way route remains in operation to ensure people’s safety; visitors will also be asked to provide track and trace information. A full list of RAMM’s Covid-19 safety measures can be found on the museum website
