Dear Carolina/Sigal Music Museum Friends and Family,
Nine weeks have passed since the Carolina/Sigal Music Museum, along with cultural institutions worldwide, closed our doors temporarily with the COVID-19 stay-at-home order. In that time, we have worked creatively and collaboratively to continue our mission of offering innovative experiences for learning. Our digital outreach has truly been revolutionized during this shutdown, and we look forward to continuing to build upon this important initiative.
But we have missed our members and community. We are pleased to report the Carolina/Sigal Music Museum will reopen June 9 in accordance with guidelines and directives from the CDC, state and local government and the American Alliance of Museums.
New rules will be set in place to ensure the safety of all, while still enjoying our collection and exploring the museum galleries. All Carolina/Sigal Music Museum staff will be required to wear a mask while on the museum floor. Per CDC recommendations, all visitors will be encouraged to wear a mask, however you will not be denied access to the museum if you choose not to wear a mask. We have implemented new safety, cleaning, and social distancing protocols for the reopening of our spaces. It remains our top priority to create the safest environment possible for our staff and visitors.
These are challenging times for the financial stability of museums, and because of the significant revenue loss the Carolina/Sigal Music Museum has suffered due to the COVID-19 crisis, we are asking our visitors to consider making a small donation to the museum.
In the weeks ahead, as we continue to navigate this new normal together, we know we will all be able to find hope and inspiration through music. Together.
