Health & Safety

Masks Required Inside the Museum

Proof of vaccination is no longer required at BCM. All visitors 3 years old and above are required to wear a mask while inside the Museum, regardless of their vaccination status.

Book Your Tickets in Advance

Don’t miss a minute of fun by ordering your tickets online in advance. While some tickets are available for purchase at the front desk, these sell out quickly.

Wear a Mask

All visitors 3 years old and above must wear a mask at BCM (face shields alone are not sufficient). If you or your child cannot wear a mask, we regret that we cannot accommodate you at this time. We encourage you to explore our BCM+You activity page to experience our Museum fun at home. We look forward to welcoming you back to BCM’s site when these precautions are no longer necessary.

Keep Your Distance

Families are asked to stay 6 feet apart from one another and give each other space. Help us reduce crowds in exhibits by leaving bulky bags or other items at home and by leaving your stroller in our stroller parking area. Coat check is not open at this time.

Be Kind

Museum staff members may ask you or your child to wear or adjust your mask, distance from others, or wait your turn to enter an exhibit or program. Be kind to them—it’s the Brooklyn way! If you see another family who is not following the rules, do not approach them. Ask one of our BCM staff members to help.

Eating and Drinking

BCM’s café is currently closed, and eating is allowed only on the Museum’s roof terrace. There is no eating of any kind allowed in our exhibits. Water in bottles and other types of closed bottles are permitted.
