Trustees of the Radlett & District Museum are aiming for an October opening after more than four months of delays.
COVID-19 and the resulting restrictions brought an instant halt to the project, but the opening arrangements will be publicised as soon as possible, say the trustees.
It may be necessary to operate an appointment system to control the number of people in the building at any one time.
Hopefully, this will only need to be a short-term measure.
In any event, full COVID prevention measures, in line with official guidance, will be put in place.
The initial plan is to open the museum to the public on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10.00am to noon.
The museum is situated in the garden behind the Radlett Village Institute and parking facilities are available.
The museum will offer permanent displays and themed exhibitions and recordings and transcripts of interviews with local residents.
Off-site exhibitions, displays and talks will also be offered.
Educational visits will be encouraged.
An online Zoom meeting is planned for September 16 at 11am.
