The North Carolina Museum of Art set to reopen with restrictions

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- The North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh is getting ready to welcome guests back as part of Gov. Roy Cooper's Phase 2.5 reopening plan.

Under the governor's plan, museums are allowed to open at 50 percent capacity for social distancing. The museum will reopen to the public September 9 with safety restrictions in place.

Museum gallery hours are Wednesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.



"We look forward to welcoming visitors back to the North Carolina Museum of Art," Director Valerie Hillings said. "Through the collection and exhibitions, we aim to take our visitors on a journey across time and place, offering the comfort of old favorites and the excitement of new discoveries. Our top priority is keeping visitors and staff safe through expanded measures that encourage social distancing and follow state safety guidelines."

Admittance is free, but you have to book a timed ticket to gain entry for a no-touch experience.
