Covid-19 (Coronavirus) Updates
Dear AANM Members and guests,
As COVID-19 (Coronavirus) continues to impact our world, nation and now state, we would like to emphasize that the safety and health of our guests, staff and volunteers is our top priority. As a cultural and arts institution that serves as a local community space, we take very seriously the responsibility of ensuring every necessary measure is taken to protect the safety and well-being of our community.
It is because of this responsibility that we made the decision to close the Museum to the public on March 13, 2020.
We are pleased to announce that the Museum reopened to the public on Feb. 10, 2022! In partnership with NSF International, we prepared for our operations and to open again to the public. This was a thorough process that considered many variables including federal, state and city guidelines, close coordination with city government and cultural center institutions, as well as ongoing discussions with our staff and Museum peers.
Please view reopening guidelines and updated hours on our Visit page.
Please remain informed of the facts. More information on COVID-19 and its spread and symptoms.
We will continue to monitor the situation as it unfolds and will follow any and all recommendations from federal, state and local leaders. We thank you for your understanding and ask that you please continue to watch our social media and visit our website to stay up-to-date on all AANM announcements and happenings.
We are committed to continuing to provide in-person as well as virtual experiences and events, discoverable on our Experience page.
