Clay Norris, the association's Executive Director, says a number of precautions will be in place for visitors...IRRMA Museum Reopening01 

"We want to protect the public as much as possible, Steve, so we are going to operate at less than full capacity. We're going to allow a maximum of about 15 people in there at one time. Of course we're going to insist that people wear a mask and that don't touch the glass cases and things like that, although we're going to allow our interactive things to be in operation. We just need to make sure we can clean those after each use."

Norris says they have coordinated the reopening with that of the other museums at Arnolds Park...IRRMA Museum Reopening02 

"We've been in real close coordination with the Maritime Museum, the Welcome Center, and the Arnolds Park Museum. We're all opening at the same time, we're all following the same type of protocol. We're really excited to have everybody back. It's been since mid-March that we've been closed. The museum is new, essentially. It isn't even a year old and it's been a shame we haven't been able to have people in it over the past several months but we're really excited to re-open it."

Norris says June 6th was selected as the reopening date in order to give them some time to get the new protocols put into place.
