To ensure a safe, engaging, and flexible learning environment, we’ve made some changes to our hours, admission, ticketing process, and visitor policies. Our indoor exhibits will remain temporarily closed, while we focus on providing an exciting outdoor experience.
What’s New at the Montshire
New Days and Hours
The Montshire will be open Wednesdays through Sundays, 10am to 4pm.
We will be closed to the public on Mondays and Tuesdays, however summer camps will still take place on these days.
Special Admission for July
To celebrate our reopening, a promotional rate of $14 for adults and $11 for children will be available for the month of July.
Members and children under the age of 2 can enjoy the Museum for free.
Advanced Ticketing Process
We are implementing a timed ticketing system to ensure that our visitors can safely maintain social distancing.
All visitors, including members, are required to pre-register. Tickets must be reserved in advance for a morning arrival (10am–12:30pm) or afternoon arrival (1:30–4pm). You may arrive at any time during the session you have chosen, and you may stay as long as you wish until the Museum closes at 4pm.
You may purchase or reserve your tickets on this website up to three days prior to your visit.
To minimize the risk of COVID-19 spread, we require that visitors over the age of three wear a face covering or mask when inside the building. Face coverings and masks are highly encouraged outside and we ask that you wear them when interacting with Museum staff or other visitors.
Practice Healthy Hand Hygiene
Hand hygiene is crucial in mitigating the spread of infection. We ask that all visitors wash their hands or use hand sanitizer upon entry. We have upgraded our restrooms with touchless features and have increased the availability of hand-washing and hand-sanitizing stations throughout our building and grounds.
Maintain Social Distance
Social distancing has proven to be an effective measure in decreasing the risk of infection. We are limiting one visitor group per exhibit and ask that visitor groups stay together (all children must stay with adults at all times). We are also maintaining one-way directional traffic in the building and in some outdoor spaces
Limit Contact with Surfaces
Personal items must be kept with visitors at all times. The coat room will be closed. Eating and drinking are not permitted inside the Museum building.
Due to the current public health situation, we are not accepting reservations for group visits at this time. Measures may change over time. We will adjust and communicate accordingly.
