To help mitigate exposure and ensure the best possible experience, we have implemented additional safety and cleaning procedures. Contact email@example.com with any questions ahead of your visit.
A face mask is still required to be worn at all times throughout your visit. We also ask that you follow these guidelines:
Safety and Cleaning Procedures
The museum asks that you observe all signage and instruction provided at the museum and we reserve the right to ask anyone not following safety measures to leave the premises.
We promise you:
We have the highest quality air filtration system and have added “no touch” faucets and restroom facilities, as well as increased daily cleaning and sanitization schedules to help ensure we meet standards set by the CDC.
We will limit the number of visitors in the facility at one time to help visitors enjoy the museum without crowds and lines and with the recommended social distancing space.
We ask of you:
Masks are still mandatory throughout your visit. Please plan on wearing a mask that covers your nose and mouth. If you don’t have your own mask, we can provide one for you. Visitors who cannot medically tolerate correctly wearing a mask will be asked to return to the museum when the face covering order is lifted.
Please observe all social distancing requirements, including limiting your group size to fewer than 10 people. Onsite signage will be in place to help remind you to keep 6 feet between your party and other visitors.
Purchase your ticket/reserve your entry time in advance online.
Come back another day if you are not feeling well.
Wash your hands frequently.
