COVID-19 Update – Masks Optional

The safety and health of visitors and staff is the highest priority at the Mattatuck Museum. With the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) within the United States, the Museum is keeping up to date with all CDC health-related plans and procedures.

Based upon the recent recommendation of the CDC, the Museum is returning to a “masks optional” policy for visitors and staff. Masks are available at the visitor services desk for patrons who would prefer to wear them.

By entering the facility, attendees accept all risk in attending in-person events and will adhere to all social distancing and protective equipment use requirements. Read some of our Frequently Asked Questions to learn more about the Museum’s updated guidelines for visitors, including what to expect on your visit, cleaning and safety protocols, and more.
