Keeping you safe during COVID-19 

At KMAC Museum, we're working hard to ensure your safety while you're our guest. We're closely monitoring all guidance from the Centers for Disease Control, state and local health authorities, and local organizations like the Greater Louisville Arts and Cultural Alliance, and updating our policies and procedures as needed. 

Here's what we're doing to keep you safe:

  • For the time being, we've removed all interactive spaces in the museum. We hope to be able to offer you those experiences again in the future, but for now they're on hold.

  • We've stepped up our cleaning and sanitation procedures, especially as relates to high-touch surfaces like door handles, elevator buttons, counters, and hand rails. Don't be surprised if you see staff sanitizing these surfaces throughout the day.

  • We've added Plexiglas barriers to our registers and our check-in desk to give you and our staff an extra layer of protection.

  • We've created a one-way path through our galleries and shop to aid in social distancing. Floor markings will guide you as you move throughout the space.

  • We're restricting the number of guests inside the building to no more than 40 people. This is well below the 33% of capacity mandated by Kentucky Healthy at Work guidelines,  but it's a number we feel comfortable with for now.

Here's what we're asking of you before and during your visit:

  • We'd appreciate it if you purchased your tickets in advance through our website although we're happy to sell you a ticket at the door. Click here to get started with your online purchase.

  • We're requiring that all guests (over the age of 2) wear face coverings during their visit. We think this is the most effective step we can take to ensure your safety.

    • We understand some guests may have medical conditions that make ​​the use of face coverings difficult. We're happy to find accommodations in these cases. Please ask our staff for help.

  • We'll request  that you use hand sanitizer when you arrive, and you'll find additional sanitizer throughout the museum. We hope you'll make use of it as you find necessary. If you prefer, hand washing is also available in our first and second floor restrooms.​

  • Finally, we'll require one person in each party to provide an email or phone number for contract tracing purposes. This information will ONLY be used by public health officials in the event that your visit coincides with the visit of someone found to be positive with COVID-19. Your phone number or email address will automatically be  destroyed 30 days after your visit, unless you give us permission to email you with museum updates.
