The State Museum of Pennsylvania - Affiliate Membership

Dear Members,

We're reopening!  We are excited to welcome you back to The State Museum of Pennsylvania starting April 30, 2021, after a year of closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic crisis.
                                                                               
As promised, we will be renewing memberships that were active in March 2020 to cover the number of months lost when we closed that March.  We're also adding on an extra 2 months free as a thank you for your patience and support of The State Museum.  Your new personalized membership card will come by mail in just a few weeks and will reflect the additional months. 

Our open hours will be reduced with limited capacity at first to allow for more preparation and safety measures: 

Wednesday - Saturday    9 am - 3 pm
Sunday   12 noon - 3 pm

We will be requiring that all visitors wear masks in the museum, and we will practice social distancing.  In addition, we will be offering timed free admission tickets online for members in advance.  

Please note that the Planetarium and Curiosity Connection will not reopen on April 30 due to capacity concerns.  We hope to reopen these special features within a few months.  

We'll be back in touch with more information about how to obtain timed tickets.  In the meantime, please visit the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission's special page for reopening at https://www.phmc.pa.gov/welcome-back/Pages/default.aspx for info about other Trails of History sites and museums you can visit starting on April 30.  The State Museum's web site also has a reopening landing page with additional information at statemuseumpa.org/reopening.

Be safe and be well! Thank you for hanging in there with us!
