We are sure you are closely following developments pertaining to Covid 19 (Coronavirus) and how it will impact on access to educational and cultural sites.

Ensuring the health and safety of our visitors and staff and minimising the risk of spread of infection is our utmost priority.

We have taken ongoing steps to ensure compliance with best practices and recommendations from the HSE, and are currently complying with a the Government’s requirement that museums close to the general public, and we will remain closed until further notice.

We are immensely grateful to our visitors and the people of Cork for their continued understanding and patience during this unprecedented event. We regret any disappointment this closure may cause, and we will expedite refunds where necessary. However we are certain you share our concerns and agree that the safety of all staff, visitors, and the local community is paramount.


Thank you,

The BCO Team
