Continued Vigilance Against COVID-19

We are grateful for the progress Massachusetts has made against COVID-19.  We continue to evolve our operations in light of improving public health guidance and the wellbeing of our visitors, staff, and volunteers.

At present, face coverings are still required of all visitors aged 3+, regardless of vaccination status, inside the Wenham Museum.  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.  We will continually re-evaluate this requirement as vaccination rates increase.  Face coverings are not required during outdoor programs and events.
