Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, some of the exhibit gallery finishing work was suspended, impacting the project timeline. The Museum will open when the conditions can ensure the health and safety of Museum visitors and staff, and the Museum is ready to begin daily operations. This delay and the current health emergency has impacted Special Event rentals and bookings as new guidance and policy is fluid during this time. The Museum is not taking reservations for 2020, and will continue to assess feasibility of events into 2021 as the COVID-19 landscape evolves. If you have any questions or are interested in discussing a future event vision, our planning team are fielding requests through the form below.
