Provincetown Museum Opening Aug. 1

Filed Under: Non Profit News
The Provincetown Museum will open its doors for the 2020 season on Saturday, Aug. 1.
To maintain visitor and staff safety, Provincetown Monument and Pilgrim Museum has adapted health and safety protocols including limited capacity, revised ticket purchase and booking procedures, face covering requirements and updated or amended exhibitions.
The Pilgrim Monument and its grounds will remain closed, due to the construction of the Bradford Access Project — an inclined elevator designed to improve accessibility for all visitors to the PMPM grounds. This project supports the organization’s mission of advancing inclusion and welcoming all.
In commemoration of the past 400 years of Provincetown’s history, PMPM will debut a new permanent exhibit, “Our Story: The Early Days of the Wampanoag Tribe and the Pilgrims Who Followed.” Curated by Paula and Steven Peters of SmokeSygnals, the interactive and technological exhibit offers an accurate story of the Wampanoag Tribe’s history on Cape Cod, including the 1620 arrival of the Mayflower from England.

  • Personal protective equipment (PPE) requirements: Museum staff and any visitors 2 years old and over will be required to wear face coverings that cover their mouth and nose at all times while inside the Museum. Masks will be available for purchase onsite.

Patrons will be asked to follow the markers and move through the Museum in a single direction, as well as remain six feet away from other guests. Guided tours, events and other public programs are temporarily suspended.

  • Enhanced cleaning: museum staff will be regularly cleaning and sanitizing all areas of the museum, including the exhibit halls, gift shop and restrooms. Sanitizing wipes and hand sanitizer dispensers will be available throughout the Museum.
