COVID-Related Guidelines

To create a safe and enjoyable experience for all visitors and staff, we have established the following guidelines following recommendations put forth by the CDC, the Kentucky Governor’s Office, and Louisville Metro:

  • Prior to reopening, the museum’s facility was professionally cleaned and sanitized
  • If you are sick, please stay home until you are better
  • Staff is self-monitoring their temperatures every 24hrs and will immediately report fevers to management
  • Staff and visitors will be required to wear face masks/coverings at all times — reusable masks will be available for a $3 donation per mask and limited to one mask per visitor
  • Visitors must enter through the front entrance (facing Portland Ave) — all other entrances will be inaccessible to control the flow of traffic
  • Visitors will be asked to use hand sanitizer upon arrival and to leave a phone number or email address in case it is needed for COVID-19 contact tracing purposes
  • Visitors are to practice social distancing at all times — the entrance lobby will have lines marked on the floor to accommodate this
  • Signage and arrows will be posted throughout the museum to coordinate the flow of traffic
  • Visitors should not touch surfaces unnecessarily — interactive elements in our exhibitions have been adapted or temporarily removed
  • Restrooms will have locks on the main door so that they are single-use — we will post signs on both sides of the door to remind visitors to lock the main door behind them
  • Water fountains will be turned off
  • Hand sanitizer will be available in key locations throughout the museum
  • Surfaces, such as door handles, will be sanitized on a fixed schedule or if there’s an influx of visitors
  • The number and flow of visitors will be monitored, and the number of visitors in a gallery at one time will be limited as needed
