Visitors & Group Admissions 

Public Mask Requirements 

∙ Public mask requirements for fully vaccinated visitors will be lifted as of May 29, 2021. We will continue to encourage our visitors to wear a mask if they would like. Unvaccinated visitors will still be required to wear a mask. 

People are considered fully vaccinated: 
∙Two (2) weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose vaccine series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna  vaccines, or 
∙Two (2) weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine

∙ School groups, with visitors under the age of 12, will still be required to wear a mask. Our staff, when interfacing with youth, will be required to wear masks and follow the same protocols as schools by maintaining at least 3 feet away. 

Venue/Visitor Capacity 
∙ Capacity limits will be lifted effective May 29, 2021. Our Visitor Engagement staff are encouraged to equip our visitors with information to make informed decisions about their stay,  such as letting our visitors know that they can start their visit to the Museum in one of the upstairs changing galleries if the main gallery is full and they may enjoy the start of their visit in a less crowded space. 

∙ There will no longer be a capacity limit on adult group tours. Group tours will not be booked  after 2pm on Saturday to avoid any parking lot issues with buses when Foundry events are  scheduled for that Saturday evening. Youth/student group tours will continue with some  additional protocols and distancing in line with current public health guidelines for schools. 

∙ White House tour capacity to increase to 12 visitors per tour and return to the former two-floor full tour route effective May 29, 2021.

Social Distancing
