Museum Announces Face Mask Policy

The Wabash County Museum has been to the public for about one month now following the stay at home orders and since then have been pleased to welcome new and returning guests to enjoy the facility.

As the Museum continues to evaluate procedures, keeping the health of guests, staff members, and volunteers as a top priority, the Museum is announcing a change to their policies. Beginning Tuesday, July 21st, all guests ages two and older will be required to wear a mask when visiting the Museum. This decision, made in conjunction with the Board of Directors and the Museum's leadership team follows best practices being shared by partner institutions. The Museum is asking that guests provide their own masks when possible as the Museum has a very limited supply.

In addition to requiring masks, the following procedures continue to be in place:

- The Museum is operating at a 50% capacity. Though advanced tickets are not required at this time, they Museum strongly encourages large groups to contact them prior to visiting.

- The Den presented by Beacon Credit Union educational area is temporarily closed. The Museum is planning a reopening date in August, when the Governor moves Indiana to stage 5 of the Back on Track re-opening plan.

- Every exhibit is thoroughly cleaned daily and as needed throughout the day. Specific exhibits may be temporarily closed for more extensive cleaning from time to time.

- Everyone is expected to follow social distancing requirements. Signage is posted throughout the Museum as a reminder.

- The Museum has made numerous hand sanitizing stations available throughout the facility.

- Staff members and volunteers are screened daily and required to wear a mask in all public spaces of the Museum.

- If you are not feeling well, please stay home.
