The Asa Packer Mansion is open on Saturdays and Sundays with increased safety measures following over twelve months of closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
- The Museum will operate on a limited schedule, from 11:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday through Sunday until further notice on a “walk thru tour basis”.
- As the staff would very much like to operate as in the past with a personal tour, the Museum will operate with walk-thru tours until further notice.
- Masks are required by all visitors over the age of 4, including fully vaccinated persons.
- The Museum has implemented a timed ticketing system to limit the number of patrons in the Museum to ensure proper protocols are followed regarding social distancing and capacity requirements.
The Museum has implemented a comprehensive policy to ensure the safety of patrons, employees, volunteers, and artifacts during the reopening phase. The new measures follow local, state, and national regulations and best practices and will allow the Museum to offer an educational and enjoyable experience while maintaining vigilance. In accordance with Pennsylvania guidelines, the Museum will operate at a 50% capacity until further notice and utilize a timed ticketing system, to allow for controlled entry to the Museum with minimal person-to-person interaction. The Museum has been professionally cleaned and sanitized following CDC guidelines prior to reopening and reduced hours allow for Museum staff to disinfect between visiting days. A Plexiglas barrier has been mounted at the Museum’s front desk and all staff and visitors over the age of 4 are required to wear masks while inside the Museum facilities.
For any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact Ava M. Bretzik, the Museum’s Director and Curator at email@example.com or call the Museum during operating hours at 570-325-3229.
