What Visitors Can Expect
Protecting the health and safety of employees, volunteers and visitors is our highest calling. This will be achieved through the implementation of screening, PPE (personal protective equipment), physical distancing, disinfecting, limitations in capacity, signage, physical barriers and single-flow routing to avoid clustering. The engagement and cooperation of our staff and visitors will be critical to this mission. Our ability to remain open relies on the cooperation of all to follow safety regulations and guidelines.
The following is a look at what to expect when visiting the Museum during these challenging times.
