With museum finances hit hard by Covid-19, decisions over opening cultural institutions are proving complex.

The Prime Minister announced on Tuesday that museums could now open their doors but although a statement from leading galleries such as the V&A and Tate welcomed the news, individually they were not committing to particular dates for admitting visitors.

Staffing, social distancing measures and financial assistance packages are among the issues at the centre of discussion about a return to the 'new normal' for museums.
