To continue to help limit the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), the Science Museum of Virginia is extending its public closure through June 10, 2020. This includes all programs and activities, the Dome theater, and public community events at the Museum.
If you purchased a ticket to a Museum activity during this time, you may hold onto that ticket for a future visit, you may request a refund or you may choose to “donate” that ticket to the Museum. Please contact Guest Services at 804.864.1400 or email@example.com for more information. Please be patient as our team works to respond to each inquiry, which could take longer than usual.
Private events to be held at the Museum through the end of April will be addressed on a case-by-case basis. Event organizers who have a private event scheduled at the Museum during this time should contact the Museum’s special events team at 804.864.1466 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The policy regarding re-opening to the public will be revisited as the situation continues to evolve. The Museum will communicate with the community through our website and social media platforms as more information becomes available.
Our doors might not be open, but the science discovery doesn’t have to stop. Visit the blog on our website for articles about pretty much anything under the sun (and some about space). We also have a library of videos on our YouTube channel for your viewing pleasure. We will explore ways we can continue to inspire scientific discovery while we are closed to the public so check back regularly or follow us on social for new content.
The health and safety of everyone who walks through our doors – guests, employees, volunteers, interns, partners, vendors and special event attendees – is always a top priority. We appreciate everyone’s understanding and cooperation at this time. We encourage you to stay informed about COVID-19 and to seek out trusted sources of information, like the Centers for Disease Control and the Virginia Department of Health, regarding updates on COVID-19 and actions you can take to help limit the spread.
Stay tuned for more information and stay curious.
