DALLAS, N.C. - As the State of North Carolina moves into NC Safer at Home Phase 2.5, the Gaston County Museum is excited to announce its plans for reopening to the public. Over the past several months, museum staff have been working diligently to prepare the museum to open safely and will welcome visitors with a new feature exhibit in the Gathering Room Gallery on opening day. Director Jason Luker says, “this has been a long-awaited moment for us and we are so excited to begin the reopening process for our community.”
In light of the changes that COVID-19 has brought to our community, the Gaston County Museum’s visitor experience will look different than it has in the past. The museum will provide signage throughout the building to help guide visitors through the galleries and will limit entry through timed reservations. All visitors will be required to wear masks and to adhere to safety measures that align with CDC, state, and county guidelines.
“We all long for some sense of normalcy” stated Mr. Luker, “but reality still requires our diligent precautions. In time, museum visitations and general life experiences will return to the openness and camaraderie we once enjoyed, especially if we all do our part to deter this virus and protect our fellow citizens.”
