While many are facing the opening of schools online and in-person, there are other openings that deserve merit. They are the Dallas museums that have gone dark for the safety of their guests and staffers due to COVID-19 restrictions. Ever concerned about the reopening of their world-class collections, they hesitated to open their doors until they were sure that a safe protocol was in place.
The following museums will be opening in the days ahead:
- Friday, August 14 — Dallas Museum of Art and the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum
- Thursday, August 20 — Nasher Sculpture Center
- Friday, September 18 — Crow Museum of Asian Art
- Mid-September — The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza
- TBD — Perot Museum of Nature and Science
Before heading out the door to visit one of these institutions, check their website(s). There are new guidelines on attendance (i.e., limited schedules, making reservations online, wearing masks, etc.).
If you’re still hesitant about breaking out of your rabbit hole, not to worry. Most of the museums have provided online visitation. Translation: You won’t need to put on makeup or your fancy duds to take in their wonders!
