COVID-19 Information:

The safety of our guests, staff, and volunteers, is critical. Our Museum has installed a number of safety features to help protect everyone.

Though state and local rules permit full occupancy, we wish to be extra-cautious. We will be monitoring the number of people inside the Museum throughout the day. In addition, we ask you to maintain social distancing while visiting the Museum, and we require all guests—as well as staff and volunteers—to wear a mask while inside the building (regardless if you have the vaccination or not). If you don’t have a mask, we will be happy to provide one. Regretfully, we cannot allow anyone to enter the museum without one.

Thank you for understanding, for helping us keep everyone safe!
