To promote safety, the museum states that drinking fountains, the food court, Planetariam Shop, Cosmic Shop and Dino Store will be unavailable.


All theaters are also closed, in addition to touchscreen exhibits, the Ross Hall of Meteorites, Gottesman Hall of Planet Earth, Cullman Hall of the Universe, Scales of the Universe, Discovery Room, and public educational laboratories.

All tickets are timed for entry to limit the number of guests in the museum at once. In addition, the museum is being regularly disinfected and cleaned throughout, plexiglass barriers have been added at ticket counters, ventilation systems have been upgraded, and markers have been placed to promote physical distancing. Hand sanitizer stations have also been placed throughout the museum.

Visitors can access the museum through the entrance at 79th and Central Park West or the 81st Street Rose Center for Earth and Space.
