BARNUM MUSEUM CLOSURE | CORONAVIRUS – COVID 19
Governor Ned Lamont announced that effective 8:00 p.m. tonight (3/16/20) that all gatherings are limited to max 50 people, restaurants/bars must transition to take-out/delivery only. Movie theaters, gyms, and commercial casinos are to close until further notice. This effort is part of a tri-state, regional approach to containing the virus, and the same action is being taken by both New York and New Jersey governors. Read more about the collective measures here.
The health and well-being of our community is our primary concern. To support the efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19, the Barnum Museum will close effective March 17th and remain closed through April 6th, at which time we will re-evaluate the situation. All programs, tours, and public visitation are canceled during this time. We look forward to rescheduling events when possible.
On behalf of the Barnum, we wish you, your family and your community good health and safety as we maneuver this crisis together. ‘TEAM EFFORT’ has never meant so much!

The Barnum Museum fulfills P.T. Barnum’s own mission: to inspire curiosity, creativity and confidence through instructive entertainment.
