After temporarily closing its doors on March 18, 2020 due to the pandemic, the Roswell Museum and Art Center has announced it will re-open to the public Tuesday, October 20, 2020. The Museum will operate at a 25% capacity while enacting new safety measures, including reduced hours to allow for additional cleaning, requiring face coverings, and social distancing guidelines.
Cleaning will be enhanced throughout the Museum, including increased frequency of disinfecting high-traffic surfaces, and sanitizer stations will be available in several areas. In accordance with state requirements, the Museum’s staff, as well as all visitors, will be required to wear face coverings; complimentary masks will be provided for guests who need one. In addition, masks made by local artists through the Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program are available for sale in the Museum Store.
Visiting hours during the initial phase of reopening will be Tuesday through Friday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is currently free to the Museum through the end of the year. In order to allow space for ample social distancing, it is strongly encouraged that visitors call to set up an appointment to visit the Museum at 575-624-6744, although walk-ups will be welcome as space allows. As recommended by state and city officials, those who are not feeling well and people with serious medical conditions should delay their visit until a safer time. The Robert H. Goddard Planetarium will remain closed until further notice.
