PHOENIX — The Heard Museum in Phoenix announced on Tuesday that it will be reopening in June.

The museum, which has been closed due to the coronavirus outbreak, will be reopening in two phases.

The first phase will be for members only and will be conducted June 2-7. Hours of operation during this time will be Monday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

On June 9, the general public will be permitted access during those same hours, but with an extended closing time of 8 p.m. on Fridays for all guests.

Once the museum is open to the public, members will be able to enter early on Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.

However, the Courtyard Café will continue to be temporarily closed.

New policies and procedures will also be installed by the Heard Museum in order to follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Arizona State Department of Health.

Those new policies include limiting attendance to 100 guests per hour with a maximum capacity of 240 and encouraging visitors to purchase tickets online, the latter of which can save customers up to $3 per ticket.

New procedures also require social distancing and face coverings for all employees and customers while indoors. Disposable gloves and masks will be available free of charge upon request.

A full list of the Heard Museum’s new safety and operations updates can be found online.

We want to hear from you.
