WASHINGTON, DC – The health and safety of our visitors, staff, and volunteers are the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s highest priority. The spread of the coronavirus is projected to continue to increase in the coming weeks, both locally and nationally.
Therefore, the Museum will temporarily close to the public beginning Monday, November 23. Visitors who have reserved passes for times after the 22nd will be notified immediately. A reopening date has not been determined. The Museum will continue to monitor the situation and update our status, as needed on our website, ushmm.org/vist.
A living memorial to the Holocaust, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum inspires citizens and leaders to confront hate, prevent genocide, and promote human dignity. Its far-reaching educational program and global impact are made possible by generous donors nationwide.
