On June 2, 2021, the State of Ohio is removing all health orders related to the pandemic that would apply to museum operations. The Armstrong Air & Space Museum will continue to follow current guidance from the CDC for safest behaviors related to COVID-19, while also taking into consideration the unique architecture of our building and galleries. As more than 30% of our visitors are children under the age of 12, and thus ineligible for vaccination, the museum is committed to creating an environment in which those who are unable to be vaccinated can feel comfortable visiting. Below are the guidelines under which the Armstrong Museum will be operating effective June 2, 2021. We will continue to monitor both the guidance of the CDC and our visitors' behaviors and update these guidelines accordingly.
– Face coverings will not be required of any visitors, employees or volunteers. Masks are highly encouraged for children ages 3-11 and any other unvaccinated individuals 12 and up, per CDC public health guidelines.
– We are requiring all staff and volunteers to wear masks when working in any public indoor space. This is to create a uniform presentation for our visitors in order to remove any concerns they may have about employee vaccination status. Masks are not required in non-public spaces but encouraged for any staff or volunteers who are unvaccinated.
– We will continue to follow our enhanced cleaning procedures and provide hand sanitizer stations throughout our public spaces.
– Due to the building's unique layout, we will continue to evaluate the visitor experience based on reasonable comfort levels and may control entry into the building, or individual classrooms or galleries.
– The Astro-Theater has re-opened for regular showings of our Apollo 11 documentary at the top and bottom of every hour. Please check with the front desk about any changes.
