Museum Open, With Safety Measures in PlaceChris Hauff Sep 15, 2020
Our museum is open every day. Beginning Sept. 19, we will operate under seasonal hours, weekends: 9 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and weekdays: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. We can’t wait to welcome you back aboard our fleet of historic warships.
We know some people may still feel uncomfortable about visiting a museum right now, and that is o.k. For those that do want to come to see us, we have several new safety measures in place to reduce opportunities for transmission of COVID-19.
Until social-distancing recommendations change, face covering are required and we will keep visitors from entering the submarine Clamagore, our Apollo 8 capsule, and a few of the bunkers in our Vietnam Experience. Inside climate-controlled areas aboard the USS Yorktown, the air is sanitized by new ultraviolet light air purifiers that were installed during our closure.
Floor signage at our ticket window and inside the gift shop encourages visitors to keep six feet apart. We’ve also doubled the number of hand sanitizing stations in the museum. We are proud of the work our custodial team does and are doubling down on the sanitation of tour routes and restrooms. Please let us know if visitors think something can be done better.
Thank you to everyone who supported us and the USS Yorktown Foundation through the last few months. We take our mission seriously and are looking forward to our new beginning this Friday. Don’t forget, to avoid contact, skip the line and buy tickets online. Do you have more questions? Click here for a list of common questions we can answer for you. We’ll see you soon.
