  • Stay at home if you are sick, experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, or have had known exposure to the virus.
  • The museum’s admission limits have been reduced to 25% capacity. Large events have been moved to an online medium and group tours are suspended at this time.
  • All visitors must adhere to posted social distancing guidelines in museum spaces, including entryway, exhibition, and restroom areas. In all indoor and outdoor spaces, stay at least six feet away from other visitors, staff, and volunteers. Signage advising visitors of social distancing guidelines and behavior will be posted on site.
