Health and Safety

If you’re feeling unwell or experiencing any covid-like symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, or sore throat, please stay home now so we can see you again soon.

If you have traveled or are from outside Canada, we welcome you to the museum after the mandatory 14 day isolation period.

Hand sanitizer is available upon entry and we encourage frequent hand washing for best protection.

Debit/Credit payment is preferred.

Please follow the posted guidelines to maintain safe physical distancing throughout the gallery and gift shop. We recognize not everyone takes the same amount of time to move through the gallery so ask our staff for assistance if you need. We’re here to help.

Wearing a cloth mask is a matter of personal choice and museum staff have been given the option. We also respect the personal choices of our visitors in this regard.

Movement through the gallery and gift shop is one-way. Please respect the posted directional signage.

We have implemented enhanced cleaning measures for high touch surfaces and all public areas including the admissions desk, gallery, washrooms, and gift shop. Staff have been provided with additional cleaning supplies.

Due to the easy spread of COVID-19, large group tours and day camps have been cancelled this year.

If in doubt, please call ahead. We are happy to answer questions and address your concerns.

We look forward to seeing you this summer!
