A few words on the guest experience, visitor etiquette, and the museum’s COVID-19 prevention plans:

The Pax Museum is committed to the safety and well-being of its staff, volunteers, and visitors. With the help of visitors, the museum can ensure a safe reopening for all.

Here’s what the museum will do:

  • Plenty of hand sanitizing stations are located within the facility.
  • Museum high-touch surfaces, handles, restrooms and other areas will be disinfected on a routine schedule.
  • Capacity limits indoors are adjusted (to include the theater and gift shop spaces).
  • Simulator use and some interactive displays have been temporarily suspended.

Here’s what visitors can do:

  • Please wear your mask. Face coverings are required indoors for anyone older than 2.
  • Please observe social distancing throughout the complex. There’s plenty of space to spread out.
  • Please wait patiently for your turn in the gift shop and theater. The staff will help notify you when it’s your turn to enjoy these parts of the museum.
  • If you’re feeling ill or exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19 (or have been in contact with an infected person), please postpone the visit until you are well.
