Why are face coverings required?

According to an executive order issued by Governor Mills on May 29, 2020,  everyone in Maine who enters a public place where physical distancing is difficult to maintain will be required to wear a cloth face mask or covering to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.* Due to the museum layout, social distancing is difficult and face coverings must be worn throughout the entire building. If you forget yours, don’t worry! We will have some free disposable face coverings available at the front desk.

We know they’re uncomfortable, and we wish we didn’t have to wear them! However, as a state agency and a cultural space that belongs to the people of Maine, we take our responsibility to public health very seriously. We need all of our visitors and staff members to feel safe here.

By wearing face coverings, our visitors will make it possible for our museum to remain open to the public in these difficult times. We truly do appreciate your patience and understanding!

*There are exemptions for children under the age of 2 and people who cannot wear masks for medical reasons.
