COVID-19 Precautions
Face coverings are not required at outdoor programs and events at the Wenham Museum. At present, masks are still required of all those ages 3+ visiting the Wenham Museum indoor galleries and gift shop, whether you have been fully vaccinated or not.  Because the museum serves a high volume of young children who are not yet eligible to be vaccinated, we are continuing masking for the time being.  We ask adults to model good behavior for children by continuing to wear masks.  Learn more on our Reopening page >>

Please contact our Summer Fair Chair, Barbara Brown, Trustee at  Thank you!
