We are committed to taking the steps necessary to protect the health and safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers, but we can’t do it alone. We will need the help and cooperation of everyone to achieve this important objective.
Our commitment to you: We want to provide an enjoyable educational experience for our visitors, but that experience will necessarily be a bit different than in prior years. The Museum exhibits will be self-guided this year. We will follow all applicable Pennsylvania COVID guidelines and requirements. Signs will highlight the traffic pattern through the Museum. Visitors will tour the top floor exhibit space and then go downstairs to see the Boiler Room and the John S. O’Connor special exhibit, exiting through the side doors on the middle floor of the building. Visitors who have difficulty with the stairs may still exit the Museum through the entrance.
We will clean and disinfect public spaces and high-touch surfaces in the Museum, including doorknobs, railings, and restrooms, during the day and at night. We will also provide hand sanitizer stations at entrances and exits and in the restrooms. Soap and water for handwashing is available in all restrooms as well. A plexiglass shield at the front desk has been installed as a protective measure for our volunteers.
What we ask of you: For your safety and the safety of others, we ask that you adhere to the following:
- If you do not feel well, if you have been exposed to COVID-19 recently, or if you have symptoms of COVID-19, including a fever, cough, or shortness of breath, please refrain from visiting the Museum.
- Wear an appropriate face covering (face mask, bandanna, etc.) at all times when in the Museum. If you do not have a face covering, we will provide a disposable face mask at no charge. Face coverings are not required for young children two years old and under.
- Limit occupancy in each of the downstairs restrooms to no more than two people at any one time.
- Follow the directional signs in the Museum.
We thank you in advance for your cooperation and the consideration of others and their safety. We want everyone to have a safe and enjoyable experience.
