Museums are slowly reopening across North Carolina. Spectrum reports that the International Civil Rights Center and Museum in Greensboro, the Cameron Art Museum in Wilmington, and the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh are already welcoming guests. The NASCAR Hall of Fame is now open and some more of Charlotte’s museum are preparing to do the same later this month.
Under Phase 2.5, all North Carolina museums must operate at no more than 50 percent capacity. However, Discovery Place Science will reopen on September 26th at only 25 percent capacity. If you’re a Discovery Place member, you can attend a special preview on September 19th and 20th.
Discovery Place is taking plenty of safety precautions. Guests will have to make online reservations and use only one entrance. The staff is also using new fog machines to clean the facility. Some exhibits may even be removed before the public returns.
Are you more of a history buff? The Charlotte Museum of History and Levine Museum of the New South will be both be opening to the general public with limited hours and capacity beginning September 19th. The Levine Museum of the New South will host a special members’ day on September 18th.
