Six Dallas musuems are now open and welcoming visitors again
After being closed since the COVID pandemic hit in mid-March, six museums in the Dallas Arts District and downtown closely collaborated over several months to determine appropriate reopening dates and new measures to ensure the health and safety of their staff and all visitors. The Dallas Museum of Art and the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum opened to the public beginning August 14. The Nasher Sculpture Center opened on August 20, the Crow Museum of Asian Art opens on September 18, the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza and the Perot Museum of Nature and Science reopening dates are to be announced soon.
In a group statement, the museums said, “We have all been working together since our closures in March to prepare for the days when we can safely welcome visitors again. The past five months have been times of significant change. As cultural institutions, we each recognize our unique roles as places for visitors to find solace, joy, and connection. We are excited to finally reopen our spaces to the community.”
Per the Dallas Arts and Culture Reopening Guidelines all staff and visitors are required to wear face masks and each facility has added sanitizing stations, among other safety protocols.
