The National WWII Museum is now open. The Museum will operate at reduced capacity while enacting new safety measures, including advanced online ticket purchases, social distancing guidelines throughout pavilions and galleries, and enhanced sanitizing and cleaning protocols.
Throughout the initial phase of reopening, most galleries, exhibits and experiences will be available with controlled attendance to allow for social distance between visitors, especially within galleries.
To help ensure public safety and avoid crowds, timed ticket purchases will be required. It is strongly recommended that visitors pre-purchase Museum admission online in advance. Tickets are now available for advanced purchase.
Tickets are available in fifteen-minute windows. Prior to arrival, please purchase timed admission tickets online for the time you would like to visit. Please note that the Museum closes at 5 p.m., so visitors who make reservations for after 3 p.m. should expect an abbreviated visit.
