Caring for Our Visitors and the Museum

Altered Plans & Precautions
• Although exhibitions are on view, fall programming is curtailed.

•  Capacity monitoring is for everyone’s safety; if busy times occur, waiting to enter the Museum may be necessary.

• If possible, consider weekday and Thursday evening visits during Birds in Art, on view through Sunday, November 29. Before visiting, please check for any updates.

The well-being of Woodson Art Museum visitors, volunteers, and employees is paramount and this guides our course as we navigate the days ahead.

Planning to Visit? Terrific! Read about precautions to help slow the spread of Covid-19, be considerate of others, and keep all safe.

A Partnership for Healthy Practices

What to Do:
• Please bring and wear face coverings while at the Museum.
• Use hand sanitizer when arriving and leaving.
• “Mind the Gap” and leave space – maintaining at least six feet of physical distance from others.
• Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
• Avoid touching your face. Catch coughs and sneezes with a tissue or inside of your elbow.
• Stay home and away from others if you are ill.
• When healthy, return often – in-person and online, too. For virtual sources of diversion and inspiration, explore the Museum’s website for digital resources – online options and activities for all ages – via the Museum’s Activity Guides, Collection search, Audio Tours page, YouTube channel, education resources, and the current exhibitions and past exhibitions web pages. Follow the Museum on social media – Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter – for art-filled moments and options. 

What We’re Doing:
• Wearing masks; we encourage visitors to do so, too.
• Frequently and continuously cleaning and disinfecting high-touch surfaces.
• Providing hand-sanitizer stations.
• Encouraging physical distancing and placing signage to remind visitors to take precautions, being considerate of others.
• Providing as many touch-free options as possible. Visitors may use their cell phones and tablets, for example, to access the digital guestbook. Via the Museum’s website, instead of printed materials, access Activity Guides, upcoming exhibition information, and audio tour videos – via the Museum’s YouTube channel.
• Minimizing transaction touch points during purchases at Visitor Services.
• Engaging Art Park visitors in a different, visual-only way; hands-on interactives are not currently possible.
• Monitoring health advisories for updates and making adjustments, as needed.
• Posting updates on the Museum’s website home page at and social media channels, as appropriate.
