Closure and reopening

On 18 March 2008. Coors announced that it was to close the Visitor Centre which the company was subsidising to the tune of £1 million a year.[2] The museum closed on 30 June 2008 but the attractions were mothballed in the hope that the museum could be reopened at a later date.[3] A steering group was established to investigate reopening the museum.[4][5] The museum reopened as the National Brewery Centre on 1 May 2010 and was officially reopened by The Princess Royal on 21 September 2010.[6]
