COVID-19 Health & Safety Measures

Planning a visit? Below are the visitor COVID-19 safety guidelines to help orient you before you arrive and ensure you get the most out of your experience.

Masking is required on all indoor tours and in the Visitor Center. Due to the size of the spaces shown on our building tours, the Tenement Museum recommends being fully vaccinated when taking an indoor tour. Children under 5 can attend a neighborhood walking tour or visit us virtually.

The Museum’s COVID guidelines apply to all visitors, regardless of vaccination status.

By purchasing a tour at the Tenement Museum, you agree to abide by these policies. To ensure that we are providing a safe environment for all, the Museum has the following protocols in place:

All guests and staff are required to wear face masks at all times while indoors. Non-acceptable face coverings include neck gaiters, mesh masks, cloth face masks with vents or filters. A mask is still required even when wearing a face shield. For more information, visit the CDC website.

Social distancing is encouraged. Visitors and staff are encouraged to social distance when possible. Wash your hands with soap and water and use hand sanitizer regularly during your visit.

Tours admission. All visitors are encouraged to purchase or reserve tickets in advance. Same-day exchanges and refunds are not permitted. Listen to Museum staff. Staff must enforce these guidelines to ensure the safety of everyone on our tours. Please follow their directions.

Stay home if you are feeling sick or symptomatic. Please do not visit the museum if you or anyone in your party has experienced any symptoms related to COVID-19 in the past 5 days.

The Tenement Museum reserves the right to refuse or revoke the admission of any visitor whose conduct violates these guidelines. If you or anyone in your party are unable to comply with the above safety guidelines, please contact the Visitor Services staff at [email protected].
