Two Mississauga museums officially reopening


If the museums being closed has had you down for the past few months, you’re in luck!

The city has announced that Benares Historic House and Bradley Museum will reopen on Tuesday, August 4, albeit with reduced hours and new safety measures in place.

Both museums will only be open from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. from Tuesday to Friday, and tours, which are currently limited to 10 people, will be by appointment only.

“We’re excited to welcome you back to the Museums of Mississauga and are taking steps to safely reopen with support from Peel Public Health and guidance from the Province of Ontario,” the city said in a recent statement.

“The health and safety of our employees and guests are our number one priority and we are taking all necessary precautions to maintain a safe environment.”

These precautions include pre-screening questions, plexi-glass barriers at front reception desks, and physical distancing markers placed throughout the historic houses to ensure staff and guests are maintaining a distance of two metres (six feet) from each other.

As with most other public spaces, guests will be required to wear a mask or face covering, and those who are sick will be asked to stay home.

More information can be found on the city’s website.
