Field Museum Sets July 17 for Reopening

The Field Museum will reopen to members on July 17 after a four-month closure. The general public can reserve tickets for July 24. 

Staff and visitors will wear masks inside the building and 144 new hand-sanitizing stations have been added. Attendance will be capped at 25 percent capacity, and floor markers will help with one-way directional viewing and maintain social distancing.

An increased cleaning schedule has been put in place and the museum will be closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays in the early stages of reopening for cleaning. High-touch areas like the Crown Family PlayLab and touch-screen interactive exhibits will remain closed temporarily. 

The Field’s newest exhibit, Apsáalooke Women and Warriors, opened a day before the closure in March and will be open for guests to see.
