The latest location with a heritage tramway to announce their reopening plans for 2021 is the Summerlee Museum of Scottish Industrial Life, with confirmation that the museum – including Scotland’s only heritage tramway – will reopen from Monday 26th April.
The museum will be open seven days a week between 1000 and 1600 and while still remaining free to visit it will be necessary for anyone to book a slot for when they want to go. Five different timed slots are available each day and you are asked to only book one slot a day. Currently bookings are available from 26th April to 30th May and they can be booked at https://summerlee-museum-of-scottish-industrial-life.arttickets.org.uk/?t=1618590558605.
Covid restrictions will remain in place which includes the wearing of masks inside and when on the tram. Interactive exhibits will be closed and indoor seating has been removed. There will be suggested routes around the museum and social distancing measures will also be introduced. For more details on what to expect from visiting the museum are available at https://culturenl.co.uk/covid-19/covid-19-summerlee/.
As with heritage locations in England it will be a different experience but its reopening and you will again be able to enjoy a ride on a historic tramcar in Scotland once more!
