The National Geographic Museum announced today that it’s reopening to visitors on Wednesday, February 16, 2022. After its closure due to COVID-19 in March of 2020, the Museum has eagerly awaited the opportunity to welcome patrons back to our campus in Washington, D.C. The Museum will be open Wednesdays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with special provisions to keep staff and visitors safe, including sanitizer dispensers, enhanced air-filtration systems, and styluses for use with interactive elements. Timed tickets are available every 15 minutes and all visitors over the age of 2 are required to wear masks regardless of vaccination status, in accordance with DC Health guidelines. We’re offering free admission to the Museum for the month of February with advance registration available at natgeomuseum.org.
“To say we’ve missed our visitors would be an understatement,” said Kathryn Keane, vice president of public programming at the National Geographic Society. “We are so excited to safely open our doors to visitors again for the first time in nearly two years with two brand new exhibitions as well as a complete renovation of the Museum store.” Starting February 16, guests can visit two new exhibitions that are central to National Geographic’s legacy of exploration and photography, “Once Upon a Climb: Stories of Everest” and “The Greatest Wildlife Photographs.”
