To our Mariners’ Family,
We want to keep you informed of The Mariners’ Museum and Park’s efforts to serve our community safely by providing updates on a regular basis. Please check this page or our social media (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) prior to your visit for the most up-to-date information.
The Mariners’ Park and the Noland Trail are currently open for public use. There are several guidelines and restrictions in place so please review those below prior to your visit. We are honored to care for such a valuable community resource, and look forward to seeing everyone in the Park and on the Noland Trail!
The following guidelines and restrictions are in addition to the normal Park and Trail rules in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are thrilled to announce the Museum is planning to reopen to Members on Friday, May 21 and to the public the following Friday, May 28. The spread of COVID-19 continues to show a consistent downward trend in the Hampton Roads region as well as an increase in vaccinations, which allows us the opportunity to reopen our doors and engage with our guests in the galleries once again!
The health and safety of our team and our guests remains a top priority. More information will come soon about new procedures, safety precautions, and timed ticketing.
We will continue to offer a robust virtual programming schedule for those who wish to connect with us digitally, while also serving engaging experiences within the Museum and Park.
While our galleries have been closed, our team has remained committed to connect people to the world’s waters. Learn more about all the incredible work our team has been able to accomplish while our galleries have been closed.
Thank you for your understanding, patience, and support. Once the spread of the virus begins to trend downward in the Hampton Roads area or as deemed acceptable by the Virginia Health Department, we will revisit our plans for reopening the Museum galleries at that time.
The safety and well-being of our Mariners’ Family, Guests, Staff, and Volunteers remain our highest priority. We hope that everyone uses precautions and stays safe and healthy.
We look forward to seeing you in the Park and Trail or connecting with us online!
