Requirements Expanding in December

In December, COVID-19 vaccination proof requirements will be expanded to include younger children and to require full vaccination:

Children: Starting December 14, children ages 5 to 11 will be required to have proof of vaccination for the public indoor activities described further below. They must show they have received at least one dose of a vaccine.

Full Vaccination: Starting December 27, people 12 and older participating in public indoor activities will be required to show proof they have received two vaccine doses, except for those who have received the one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Masks required, the CDC strongly recommends that people, even if vaccinated, wear a mask indoors in public if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission. As such, we advise employees, members and guests visiting the Museum wear a mask.
