California Museum will reopen to the public on Thursday, Nov. 5, after being closed for almost eight months because of the pandemic.

The museum announced new health and safety protocols, including increased cleaning, advance contactless ticketing and socially distanced gallery routes. Attendees over the age of 2 will be required to wear masks at all times in the museum.

When it reopens, the museum will have three new exhibits: “Women Inspire: California Women Changing Our World,” “Fight for the Right: 100 Years of Women Voting” (both developed in collaboration with Jennifer Siebel Newsom, California’s “first partner”) and a traveling exhibit called “Yosemite People.”

Admission with advance ticketing will cost $7 per person. Only 10 visitors will be allowed every half hour.

Some local museums and attractions are already open, including the Sacramento Zoo, Fairytale Town, Crocker Art Museum and California Automobile Museum. Others, such as the California State Railroad Museum and Sutter’s Fort, remain closed due to COVID-19.
