Updated: Wednesday 21 October 2020 HALF-TERM ACTIVITY ON OFFER
Well, as sad as we are about closing – we are excited to offer you our new Home Heroes Crafting Kits, to keep you and your children occupied over the half-term and beyond. Join in with our Welsh Museums Festival competition: purchase a kit, send us a photo of your finished work before 1 November and be in with a chance to win an annual Museum Family Pass (start to suit winner). Good luck everyone!

Feeling sad as we’ve now closed bookings for Friday 23 October to Monday 9 November inclusive, after the Welsh Government’s announcement on the ‘circuit breaker lockdown’. We were really looking forward to being open and welcoming you all to the Andrew Logan Museum of Sculpture in Berriew, Powys, Wales for the half-term, with half-term activities and taking part in the Welsh Museums Festival. BUT, all is not lost! We do have some activities planned for half-term that means that whilst you cannot visit us, we can, in some small way, come to you.
Please keep an eye out on our socials and here for more news by the end of the week.
Keep safe, keep sparkling and joyful out there!

As Museums across Wales work towards re-opening, when is best for them in the current climate, following the First Minister’s announcement that Welsh Museums can open (from 27 July), the Andrew Logan Museum of Sculpture Trustees are pleased to announce that we will re-open from August Bank Holiday Saturday 29 August at 10am, via a booking only system.
This will give us time to get the Museum ship-shape after our Visitor Improvement and Energy Efficiency project of 2019/20, which was impacted by Covid-19 restrictions, test our current safety assumptions and measures (which enabled our Good to Go mark) and get our booking systems up and running. We are grateful to Arts Council Wales for the award to enable our safety measures and booking system.
We are delighted that we WILL be able to open our doors to you in 2020!
Keep tuned here and on our social media for further information – we’ll be posting soon about our measures to keep you safe and on how to book.

News soon on re-opening dates for 2020 …
Tuesday 7 July 2020
We, like our Museum colleagues across Wales, await the First Minister’s announcement on 9 July. We are keeping track of re-opening guidance from our English colleagues and Welsh accommodation and will make considered decisions about re-opening when Welsh Government dated guidance is given. We really miss having you visit! Keep an eye on our Facebook for posts on our collection and other news.

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded Covid-19 resilience revenue funding from both Arts Council Wales and The Federation of Museum and Art Galleries of Wales. Arts Council Wales have also provided support for online resilience projects. We are immensely grateful to both organisations for this support, which ultimately means the survival of the Museum.
We are usually reliant only on admissions, events, project grants and private donations. Our private donations have significantly reduced during Covid-19, and, not being to open for visitors or events or undertake projects, it’s been a tough couple of months.
Thanks to Arts Council Wales and The Federation of Museums and Art Galleries of Wales, the future is looking brighter.
Can you help our future? You can do so here. Thank you.

And no change … We are occasionally attending to the Museum exhibits and building. No further news on when we might be able to open, but we are planning for enhanced cleaning and additional safety measures for when we can open. Hope you are all keeping well and safe.
Update: Thursday 7 May 2020
We await this week’s announcement and hope that the measures announced may enable us to move safely forward with bringing the Museum back into a state where we can open. We are having regular scenario discussions with our art movers.

Like everyone, we are dealing with the impacts of Covid-19 on our work at the Museum. This new page is to inform everyone who was hoping to visit us this year.
You may know, we are a small team. Where possible, we are working from home. Where this is not possible, no working is occurring. We are NOT coming into the Museum.
You may also know that we were undertaking a Visitor Improvement and Energy Efficiency project. This project was only made possible with support from Welsh Government, Powys County Council, The Federation of Museums and Art Galleries of Wales and the Foyle Foundation. This means that we have been moving around our sculptures and clearing out galleries to make space for decorators and electricians to install new LED lights and freshen our white walls. Its results see us contributing to a Carbon Zero Wales.
We were just moving works back into position (our Alternative Miss World Host and Hostess Portraits 1973 to 1995 ARE back on the walls!) when we took the decision to stop as it was not possible to safely reinstall, keeping 2 metres apart. And then national restrictions made that compulsory.
We will require social distancing measures to be relaxed before we can continue re-installing. And we must be fully re-installed before we can re-open.
Like everyone, we don’t know when this will be.
We are working very hard to ensure the future of the Museum. Please show us your support by following our Instagram and Facebook – do talk to us on there. We hope to be on there a lot more often. We also hope to be working on some interesting fundraising – like many others, we’ll need it.
You can still reach us through our contact page.
Please come back and visit our website too – we’ll update this page as we have more information. We hope you are all keeping safe, well and distancing.
