Safely Visiting The Museum

CMoA is open Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. We have guidelines around social distancing, protocols to help keep our guests and staff healthy and safe, and sanitizing measures throughout the museum. We are also prepared to make adjustments based on guidance from government and health agency authorities and visitor volume.
