Health & Safety

What we’re doing 

We’ve implemented additional measures to ensure the well-being of our guests and employees:

  • We’re asking that visitors purchase their tickets online to minimize person-to-person contact with our staff.
  • Increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting across our campus.
  • Installed additional hand sanitizing and outdoor hand washing stations.
  • Installed plexiglass shields at our admissions desk and in the Café by Highway Inn counter. 

What Visitors Can Do

We’re asking for your kōkua to take the same preventative measures you’d take in any other public space:

  • Please stay at home if you’re not feeling well.
  • Visitors over the age of 5 will be required to wear a facemask at all times indoors that covers their nose and mouth. Neck gaiters, bandanas, masks with valves, and mesh or holes of any kind, and face shields without a mask are not permitted. Masks will be available for purchase on-site if needed.
  • Please follow all Museum health and safety signage and protocol.
  • Please wash your hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, and use hand sanitizer when handwashing isn’t possible.
  • Practice social distance guidelines by spreading out at least six feet from others.

Mahalo nui loa for your continued support, and please enjoy your visit to Bishop Museum. We look forward to serving you.
