Museum scraps school visits to counter virus
Auckland War Memorial Museum has suspended all school visits, public programmes and events until further notice because of the coronavirus pandemic.
It remains open for regular operating hours of 10 am to 5 pm, daily.
Communications director Megan McSweeney says museums can be a place of refuge in uncertain times.
The Māori culture performance has been shifted from the auditorium to the Māori Court to ensure social distancing can be observed.
