OKCMOA & The Coronavirus
We are ready to welcome you back safely! The Museum is OPEN with limited capacity and timed ticketing in place. The Samuel Roberts Noble Theater is also open with capacity limits and additional safety measures in place. The Museum Cafe will reopen June 22 with Café Pompeii by Patrono.
A few changes you will notice next time you visit:
Timed tickets and limited capacity in the galleries
We are operating with extremely limited capacity to ensure visitors have ample space to observe social distancing.
Enhanced health and safety measures
Masks are encouraged throughout the Museum but are not required for fully vaccinated individuals. Interior doors are propped open to limit high-touch areas.
Increased cleaning and sanitizing
All high-touch areas are being sanitized throughout the day and hand sanitizer is available for guests.
For the safety and well-being of all of our staff and visitors, we ask that anyone experiencing any of the following symptoms refrain from visiting the Museum and contact their healthcare provider:
Samuel Roberts Noble Theater
Additionally, we have made the following changes in the theater:
Protective masks are encouraged in the Noble Theater and throughout the Museum, but are not required for fully vaccinated individuals. (If needed, masks are available in the theater lobby.)
Theater seating capacity is limited to facilitate comfortable social distancing between groups. All moviegoers are advised to arrive at least 10 minutes before show time.
Seats, armrests, and other high-touch areas of the theater and lobby are sanitized before use. Hand sanitizer is available to staff and guests.
Ultimately, it is our obligation to rethink the museum experience with social distancing practices in mind, putting these and other new measures in place so that you can once again experience great works of art in person and on the big screen. With that said, recommendations are changing regularly and the situation in Oklahoma City is evolving rapidly so we reserve the right to make changes to the list above at any time.
We would like to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has renewed or purchased new memberships or made a gift to the Museum during this time. Your support is important now more than ever and we sincerely appreciate the confidence you have placed in us. As a thank you, we will be extending membership renewals by two months and any new memberships purchased during our temporary closure in April and May will be set to expire in June 2021.
It is our belief that hope and inspiration can continue to be found in the arts. We will be here, as we have been for the last seventy-five years, doing everything we can to fulfill our mission to enrich lives through the visual arts. We look forward to welcoming you back to your Museum soon.
A NEW fast-casual pop-up restaurant is now open in the Museum Cafe space. Café Pompeii serves lunch, light bites, cocktails, beer & wine. The new concept is counter service with open seating.
