PA’s State-Run Historic Sites to Reopen April 30

The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission has announced that state-run historic sites will be reopening to visitors on April 30.

Each site will be following a host of COVID-19 safety protocols. Guests and staff will be required to wear face masks, and visitors not willing to wear a mask will not be allowed to enter the sites. All museums and historic sites will be operating with limited capacity and enforcing social distancing measures. Sites will also be implementing enhanced cleaning and disinfection procedures.

The state’s historic sites will not be holding any special events or gatherings in order to help staff readjust to normal operations. School groups and tours will resume in the fall. PHMC’s administrative offices, the Pennsylvania State Archives, and the State Historic Preservation Office will remained closed at this time.

Hours and schedules may vary by site. A full list of Pennsylvania’s state-owned historic sites and museums can be viewed here.
