The Smithsonian is expected to reopen four additional museums Friday since closing due to Covid-19.
The National Museum of African American History and Culture, National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian American Art Museum and Renwick Gallery will open Friday as part of a phased reopening.
The museums will reopen with new health and safety measures due to the Covid-19 pandemic and have reduced days or hours of operation. Visitors will need to reserve free timed-entry passes to visit most locations, according to a press release from the Smithsonian.
The National Zoo in Washington and the National Air and Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy location in Chantilly, Virginia, reopened previously in August.
