Planning a Safe Visit to T/m
March 10, 2022
Effective immediately, T/m is no longer requiring guests to wear masks while visiting the museum. Unvaccinated individuals are strongly encouraged to wear masks. We are continually reassessing our visitor guidelines and sincerely appreciate your cooperation and support.
The health and safety of our guests, staff, and volunteers is T/m’s top priority. The following guidelines for your visit are designed to support the nationwide effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. As part of multiple community safety pledges, we are doing all we can to keep visitors and staff safe while enjoying the Museum. Here is what to expect before and during your visit to T/m:

Postpone your visit if you have a fever of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or greater, if you have been sick within the past 10 days, have come into contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days, or have a chronic health condition that puts you at high risk.
You can also visit the UMKC website for current information on campus COVID-19 case notifications and notification policy, daily cases data, campus-wide communications from leadership, and additional policies and guidelines.
Visitors have the option to pre-purchase a ticket prior to your T/m visit but walk-up tickets are also available.
Your confirmation and purchase of ticket acts as your acceptance and agreement to follow T/m visitor guidelines.
