Vent Haven Museum takes seriously the safety of both its visitors and its staff. During the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic, visitors and staff will need to work together to maintain a safe environment. With  this in mind, Vent Haven Museum is making the following changes for the 2020 season.

What Museum Staff Are Required to Do

  • In the past, small groups of tourists were often combined into a single, larger tour group. To minimize transmission possibilities, museum staff will not combine groups.

  • In order to promote proper social distancing inside of the buildings, tour groups will be limited to a maximum of nine visitors.

  • Museum tour guides will have their temperature checked prior to the start of a tour and will not guide a tour if they have a fever (This may force the rescheduling of a tour date).

  • Museum staff will sanitize doorknobs, railings, and other areas commonly touched by patrons prior to the start of a scheduled tour.

  • Museum staff will correctly wear face coverings which cover both their nostrils and mouths at all times while in the museum buildings.

  • Museum staff will open and hold all doors for visitors, allowing visitors to enter and exit the museum buildings without touching any surfaces.

  • Museum staff will not offer “hands on” exhibits for visitor use during the 2020 season.

  • Hand sanitizer will be available in the final building for visitors who pay their admission donation or gift shop purchases with a credit card or who need change.

  • A slotted money box will be available and provide a hands free payment option for visitors who pay their admission donation or gift shop purchases with exact change.


In exchange for these considerations, Vent Haven Museum requires the following of visitors:

  • Visitors who have recently tested positive for COVID-19 or who are experiencing a fever, a persistent cough, difficulty breathing, or any other symptoms of COVID-19—or visitors who have recently come into contact with someone else who has tested positive or is having symptoms—are asked to contact the curator to cancel or reschedule an upcoming appointment.

  • Visitors will correctly wear a face covering which covers both their nostrils and mouths at all times while in the museum buildings.

Visitors who cannot or will not agree to these conditions should wait until the COVID-19 pandemic has subsided to visit Vent Haven.
