Taking into consideration guidelines set forth by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control, the State Museum has made the difficult decision to temporarily close to the public in an effort to help slow the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). All upcoming museum programs, events and rentals through April 5 are canceled.
The State Museum remains committed to it's mission to provide educational environments that entertain and inspire. Museum staff are currently developing engaging educational content to share online with students and families to ensure our resources can continue to be available to South Carolinians even though our doors are closed. You can find the State Museum online through the our website (scmuseum.org) and on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
The health and safety of our guests, staff and volunteers remains a constant priority. The State Museum will continue to monitor the public health risks from COVID-19 and will adhere to recommendations and guidelines set forth by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
Museum staff will remain on site and we will continue to update our operational status at scmuseum.org. We look forward to welcoming guests through our doors again soon.
