We ARE Back! – Re-opening Hours and Protocols


We are thrilled to slowly open back up for our patrons.  At the moment The Golden Teapot will remain closed, but the gallery will be open with new protocols in place.   See below.   Announcements regarding upcoming exhibits and revisions to opening hours will follow in the coming weeks.

Thanks for your support and look forward to seeing you soon!

New Opening Hours:  Tuesday to Friday   10 am to 5 pm


Glenhyrst COVID – Re-Opening Protocols

New protocols will be in place to protect both visitors and employees, following the government guidelines.


Glenhyrst will maintain the required occupancy level allowing employees and visitors to keep a physical distance of at least two metres, except for brief exchanges. The following steps will be enforced under public health orders:

Social Distancing

·      Strict social distancing protocols limiting building capacity and signage to prevent congestion

·      Touchless payment (i.e. credit and debit cards) is preferred over cash

·      Please leave backpacks and large bags at home

·      There will be no guided tours, only self-guided tours

Health Precautions & Onsite Cleaning

·      Hand-sanitation and stringent cleaning practices throughout the gallery

·      Employees and visitors must self-screen before visiting Glenhyrst

·      Washrooms have frequent sanitization and are restricted to 1 individuals at a time

·      Staff is required to wear provided masks when interacting with the public and encourages patrons to also wear masks

We ask all visitors to be mindful of social distancing practices and to prepare to wait in a line as we manage building capacity.

Thank you for your cooperation. We hope to see you back at Glenhyrst Art Gallery.
