Visiting the Museum
As the Smithsonian continues a gradual, phased reopening, we're putting safety first, with new measures in place to protect everyone’s health, including new hours and timed-entry passes.
Effective Friday, July 30, all visitors ages 2 and older are required to wear a mask while visiting Smithsonian museums and indoor spaces, regardless of vaccination status.
We ask that all visitors, including those who have been vaccinated against COVID-19, follow our safety measures to protect everyone’s health. Please see our Visiting Tips and FAQs page for details
