The top question I am getting right now is "When will you be open again?" Usually, this is followed by, "We miss the museum."
We have a draft of our reopening plans that we are running by various entities to ensure that we meet the standards necessary to do our very best to safely reopen. When approved, this plan will be available on our website. There will be some changes to what you are used to. Some exhibits will be different and we'll have to limit the number of people in the museum. We will likely go to a "timed entry" with online ticket purchase. Members would reserve their times through this same system. We are working on a plan right now that would allow you to rent out the entire museum for your birthday party. Lots of things are happening to the physical structures of things as well.
The support we received for our "emergency fund" was incredible. It allowed us to stabilize and start turning our attention to reopening. If you would like to support our reopening efforts, CLICK HERE to make a donation or set up your own fundraising page to show your support.
We are optimistic that we will be able to announce a reopening date within the next few weeks, maybe even before the end of July.
*** For our members, we will be extending your memberships for the length of time we are closed.
