As per Premier Pallister’s April 29, 2020 news release, museums, along with some other businesses, will be allowed to welcome visitors as early as May 4, 2020. Many museums will need time to obtain supplies and implement safety protocols to ensure the safety and well-being of their visitors, staff and volunteers, before they are ready for in-person visits.
You can also check out a museum's status from their individual pages on our website.
