The Washingtonian Online | DC Will Have Its First Museum Reopening on Monday

DC’s Museum of the Bible will reopen to the public this Monday. It will be the first museum in the District to reopen after mandatory Covid-related closures.

While other cultural institutions (like cinemas and theaters) remain closed under DC Phase 2 guidelines, museums are allowed to open with capacity limits and social distancing measures in place. Small events of up to 50 people are allowed if they can social distance; guided tours and tour groups are not permitted.

The Museum of the Bible will be following all of the Mayor’s guidances and will be putting additional precautions in place. All museum employees will be equipped with PPE; plexiglass panels will be installed at ticket counters, gift shops and cafes; the museum will enhance sanitizing procedures; and a clear flow path will be marked for visitors to help implement social distancing.
