There have been a number of high profile museum break-ins and associated theft or vandalism of valuable art in recent times. In an attempt to secure our gorgeous home and all that rests within her walls, we have recently installed a 24hr CCTV camera system that not only surveys the entire perimeter of the property, but also includes coverage of one or two strategic interior spaces. The interior camera network will soon be expanded to provide complete coverage.
We are also very pleased to now be supported by the locally based GRIT Security Services who have been exceptional service providers thus far. All these initiatives have been put in place not only to care for our art, but to look after our staff and our patrons.
Please join us in further protecting the assets by reporting any suspicious activities and persons to a member of staff. Please also don’t hesitate to give us your suggestions as to how better protect what we have.
