From staff reports
Beaufort History Museum, located in the historic Arsenal on Craven St., will re-open to the public on Tuesday, June 16. Admission will be free for a two-week period following the opening.
Docent-led and self-guided tours of the Exhibit Halls will be available.
In a preemptive measure to protect visitors, staff, volunteers and the collection from then evolving exposure to COVID-19, the Museum closed in mid-March and suspended all public programming. To date the Museum has not had any reported cases of infection on its premises.
“We are looking forward to welcoming people back to the Museum and are pleased to offer free admission for a period of two weeks, from Tuesday, June 16 to Tuesday, June 30,” Board of Directors President Steve Guida said in a release. “This is a chance for our patrons to return and for those who have not yet experienced all we have to offer to take advantage of this opportunity.”
Visitors will be asked to observe the commonly accepted CDC protocols for social distancing while touring the Museum. The use of facemasks is strongly encouraged.
The Arsenal’s hours 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Docents are on duty to provide information and conduct tours. Please visit www.beauforthistorymuseum.com or the BHM Facebook page for updates and news from the Museum.
