  • Face masks required for all staff members and visitors over the age of 2.
  • Six-foot physical distancing required of all patrons and staff.
  • Hand sanitizing stations located throughout the Museum.
  • Increased frequency and intensity of cleaning, especially frequently touched objects, surfaces, and high traffic areas.
  • Interactive exhibit components, which could not be modified for contactless use, will be turned off or made inaccessible.
