The USOPM is currently exploring ways to eventually open the museum when guidelines allow and keep the community safe in the process. From assessing gallery dwell times and identifying potential choke points to modifying their population plan, including timed entrances between parties, their team is quickly adapting the visitor experience. Additional visitor aspects, including online sales, plaza ticketing kiosks, an organized route through the galleries, and state-of-the-art RFID technology will further support physical distancing while also making every visit a new experience for patrons.
