The health and safety of our visitors, staff, and volunteers are the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s highest priority. The spread of the coronavirus is projected to continue to increase in the coming weeks, both locally and nationally.
Therefore, the Museum will temporarily close to the public beginning Monday, November 23. Visitors who have reserved passes for times after the 22nd will be notified immediately. A reopening date has not been determined. The Museum will continue to monitor the situation and update our status, as needed on our website, ushmm.org/vist.
Thank you for understanding and patience during these challenging and uncertain times.
Admission tickets are required to enter the Museum. Tickets are only available 30 days in advance.
This ticket grants you admission to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's Permanent Exhibition, a three-floor chronology of the Holocaust. You may enter the exhibition during the 15 minute range you select, and may remain in the exhibition as long as you like thereafter until the Museum closes.
Welcome to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Here is some helpful information for your visit. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to allow for security and health screening. Museum entry is only available at the entrance located on Raoul Wallenberg Place (15th Street). The Museum is reopening with reduced visitation, required face coverings, temperature checks, social distancing, and other enhanced safety measures. Timed entry tickets will be required for entry into the building.
WHAT IS REQUIRED TO ENTER THE MUSEUM?
For health and safety reasons, please observe the following:
· Wear a face covering. All visitors aged two and up are required to wear face coverings that cover the nose and mouth and secure under the chin. Face coverings should adhere to CDC guidelines and should not contain an exhalation valve. Gaiters and face coverings that do not secure under the chin (e.g., open bandanas) are not permitted.
· Maintain social distance. We ask that Museum visitors stay at least six feet away from visitors outside of your party.
· Wash or sanitize hands often. Hand sanitizing stations are available throughout the building.
· Complete temperature screening and health screening questions.
