The Cleveland Museum of Natural History set to reopen on July 1

The museum has been closed due to COVID-19 since March 16.

CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Museum of Natural History will open to the public on July 1, 2020 after being closed since March 16, 2020.

Some changes will take place for visitors and staff.

Those changes include:

  • A new single-direction flow through the Museum
  • Adjusted hours of operation to allow plenty of time for santization
  • Online ticketing only and timed-visit reservations to limit contact among people
  • Temperature checks for visitors and employees
  • Visitors over the age of 2 will be required to wear a mask – The Museum encourages people to bring their own mask, but will provide them.
  • Employees will be required to wear a mask
  • Visitors will have to follow social distancing guidelines
  • Plexiglass will be installed at the welcome desk

“Evidence shows that all of these precautions combined can help to slow the spread of COVID-19,” says Sonia Winner, the Museum’s President & CEO “But they require the participation of our entire community to achieve. We encourage our visitors to trust in science and do their part to make a difference as we start to establish the ‘new normal.’”
