Mariners’ Museum Set to Reopen May 21

NEWPORT NEWS—After being closed for more than a year due to the covid-19 pandemic, The Mariners’ Museum will re-open to Members on Friday, May 21, while welcoming back the general public a week later on Friday, May 28.

Team members have been busy behind closed doors to provide upcoming visitors with exciting new experiences. Conservation team members spent time during the museum’s closure to finish upgrades to the Clean Lab within Batten Conservation Complex. The upgrades include a new observation area for guests to watch as the team works on conservation projects.

The museum’s other galleries have also undergone upgrades and updates. A large-scale lighting project was recently completed in the USS Monitor Center gallery.

The Mariners’ Museum continues to host virtual programming and activities for the community including the popular children’s program Maritime Mondays.

Interested parties can reserve tickets in advance by ordering them online. For additional details, visit The Mariners’ Museum website.

In the meantime, the Mariners’ Park and the Noland Trail are both open for public use. Covid-19 safety protocols remain in place.
