“We’re thrilled to be able to safely welcome people back to the museum. Obviously as a medical museum there’s so many relevant stories from history to tell and learn from in the midst of a pandemic. History offers hope – as long as you learn from it,” says Executive Director David Price.
During any tour of the NMCWM, every safety precaution recommended by the CDC and State of Maryland will be followed including maintaining a six-foot social distance, carefully cleaning all surfaces between tours, regularly using hand sanitizer, and more.
