Masks are required in certain Museum areas.
Certain exhibits, classrooms and lab activities with limited space for physical distancing require masks to be worn. These include the U-505 On-board Tour, Coal Mine, Dissect an Eye at MSI, and the Wanger Family Fab Lab. Providing great experiences takes all our talented staff and we appreciate your help in keeping everyone safe.
In spaces that require them, masks will be provided and are required for everyone ages 2+ regardless of vaccination status. They must be worn to fit snugly and fully over the nose and mouth for the entire time in the space. If you do not follow these mask guidelines, you will not be permitted in such spaces.
If you are unable to medically tolerate a mask and need a mask exemption, please inform the staff at the entry of these spaces who will provide you with an exemption form to complete.
Know before you go.
If you haven't already, please review Know Before You Go for our current policies and procedures for guests.
