COVID19 Guidelines for Museum Visits
As the Black History Museum & Cultural Center of Virginia (BHMVA) along with a coalition of Richmond’s cultural institutions confront the continuing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, the safety of visitors, staff, and volunteers remain our primary concern. Our individual sites have been working together since March to coordinate efforts, share best practices and develop a common approach to reopening to the public in a responsible, deliberate manner.
So as our City and our Commonwealth move forward, we want to assure all visitors that we are committed to providing everyone with safe, secure, and supportive access to our facilities. While we anticipate all sites to be open by July, we will continue to use these shared principles and the most current facts to ensure the best experience for our visitors.
We are doing everything in our power to promote safety and comfort for all BHMVA visitors with an emphasis on more rigorous daily cleaning and frequent sanitization procedures.
