Figge Art Museum Has Now Reopened
This reopening does come with a few added precautions. According to the QC Times, some of those new guide lines include,
- Reservation in 90-minute increments.
- Closings throughout the day for rigorous cleaning and disinfecting.
- Visitors must wear masks and practice social distancing.
- staff members are limiting the number of people who may be in a space at once.
If those guidelines end up working for you, then you should go check out the museum. As a fan of museums it's always great knowing there is fantastic local ones here in Davenport. The Figge Art Museum being one of those.
There has also been a few updates from hand-sanitizing stations throughout the museum, Plexiglas shields separate employees from guests, and strips on door handles, which work to oxidize whatever bacteria hits the surface.
The museum has been closed for about three months, and clearly they have been making some huge changes when it comes to public safety. They also have arrows, signage and other floor markings to help guide visitors along now.
If you and the family have been trying to get out of the house safely, and are looking for something to do, this may be that perfect activity. It should be noted that "The Family Activity Center and Studio 1", which offer hands-on activities, will remain closed, but there is still plenty of amazing things to see with the family.
The Thursday evening lecture is expected to return online in July. Even more information can be found here.
