Penn Museum to reopen to visitors Tuesday (July 28)

July 24, 2020

After a four-month closure, the Penn Museum is reopening its doors to visitors. The official reopening date is Tuesday, July 28 and the museum will have COVID-19 safety protocols in place, such as limited capacity in the galleries and advanced online ticket reservations for visitors.

Admission to the museum will be timed to help social distancing and floors will have special markings to guide visitors on a one-way route through the museum. 

Visitors (ages 2+) and staff members will be required to wear a face covering at all times inside the museum and in outdoor spaces like the Warden Garden or Stoner Courtyard. Visitors are also asked to maintain at least a six-foot distance from other guests not in their household group. In addition, hand sanitizer and wipe dispenser stations will be available throughout the museum.

The museum will continue offering virtual events until further announcement. For those visitors who are not ready to return to the museum in person the Penn Museum At Home programming will also continue.
