ADVERSE WEATHER ARRANGEMENT

Museum Opening

1. Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal No. 8 or above

UMAG will be closed and remain closed if the signal is lowered less than 3 hours before the normal closing time.

2. Black Rainstorm Warning Signal

If the signal is issued during the normal opening hours, UMAG will remain open. If the signal is issued before the opening hours, UMAG will be closed until the signal is cancelled. If the signal is cancelled less than 3 hours before the normal closing time, UMAG will remain closed.

 

Arrangements of Museum Programmes

Under the situations as listed below:

a) Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal No. 8 (or above) is hoisted; or

b) Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal No. 8 will be issued within two hours as announced by the Hong Kong Observatory; or

c) “Extreme conditions” after super typhoons are in force (announced by the Government before the Hong Kong Observatory replaces Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal No. 8 with Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal No. 3); or

d) Red or Black Rainstorm Signal is in force


I. The following arrangements will apply:

For on-site programmes* not yet started

If any of the warnings or announcements is hoisted or in force at or after 6:00 am, all programmes commencing before 2:00 pm will be cancelled automatically.
 
If any of the warnings or announcements is hoisted or in force at or after 11:00 am, all programmes commencing at any time from 2:00 pm and before 6:00 pm will be cancelled automatically.
 
If any of the warnings or announcements is hoisted or in force at or after 3:00 pm, all programmes commencing from 6:00 pm onward will be cancelled automatically.

 

For on-site programmes* already started 

When Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal No. 8 or above is hoisted or the No. 8 Signal will be issued within two hours as announced by the Hong Kong Observatory, or “extreme conditions” are in force, all programmes will be suspended immediately.
 
When Red or Black Rainstorm Signal is hoisted, all programmes, except those held outdoors, will continue. For outdoor activities, the responsible staff members on the spot should suspend the activities immediately, ensure that all participants are taken to a safe place, and remain there until it is safe for them to return home.

 

II. Online programmes

Unless otherwise advised by the organisers, all online activities will continue as scheduled under all weather conditions (including situations (a) to (d) listed above).

 

Further Notes

Cancelled programmes will be postponed or fees refunded. Programme fees (if any) will be refunded only if there are more than half of the class time left to the original finishing time. UMAG will inform the participants of the arrangement as soon as possible.

When Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal No. 3 or Amber Rainstorm Signal is in force, it should be assumed that all programmes will be held as scheduled unless an announcement to the contrary has been made by UMAG.
 

*Refer to, but not limited to guided tours (public or scheduled), workshops, talks, demonstration.
