Please be assured that MMoCA staff members are monitoring the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community and implementing safety measures recommended by the CDC and local public health officials. Our top priority is always the safety of our guests and staff, and we ask that you help us keep our community healthy.

Masks are strongly recommended for visitors. Masks are also encouraged outside in the Rooftop Sculpture Garden. Some events may require masks. Due to rising cases of COVID, tour groups are required to wear masks.

MMoCA staff members have increased custodial duties of public spaces, including elevator buttons, railings, door handles, and faucets. Hand sanitizer and tissues are located prominently throughout the building. Anyone who recently experienced symptoms of COVID-19 or has been diagnosed with the virus is asked to stay home and recuperate.

We encourage you to check our website often, as additional policies and preventative measures may be added or amended to ensure that we follow all public health policies and recommendations from the CDC.

Feel free to contact the museum’s Director of Public Operations, Bob Sylvester, at with any questions or concerns.
