        The Quincy Museum Reopens!!!!

The Quincy Museum will reopen to the public on Tuesday, July 7, 2020.

At that time, we will return to our normal operating hours. 

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we ask that you please follow these guidelines:

     In order to alleviate congestion at the front door, we ask that you send in one member of your party to register your group. You may be asked to wait either in a designated location inside the museum or outside on the porch until a tour guide is available.
     Masks are optional.
    Guests may choose from a guided tour of the first floor or they may tour the first floor themselves with a self guided tour handout. Guests may tour the second and third floors on their own.
     We ask that family groups maintain social distancing when on the upper floors of the museum. Museum staff will monitor the number of people on the second and third floors and will limit access when necessary to maintain social distancing. Please be patient if we ask you to wait before proceeding upstairs.
     You may call ahead and schedule your group tour if you so desire. Group tours are limited to 10 people per tour at this time.
     Hands-on activities for children are temporarily closed due to COVID-19 restrictions. The Dinosaur, Mississippi Wildlife and Native American Rooms are still available to tour without the hands-on activities.
     The museum will take all due precautions to sanitize high touch areas between guests.
