COVID-19 Information

Mask Policy

Masks are required for all museum visitors.

Masks are optional for all other visitors, including staff, fellows, library patrons, conference center attendees, business visitors, consultants, and contractors.

Vaccine Policy

Proof of vaccination is no longer required to visit our museum.

Our vaccine policy remains in effect for all staff, fellows, library patrons, conference center attendees, and consultants, who must provide proof of vaccination before entering the Science History Institute’s building. Visitors may show their physical vaccination card or a photo of the card on their phone. Staff, fellows, library patrons, conference center attendees, and consultants must also show proof of a booster shot. Boosters are not required for business visitors and contractors.


For more information and guidelines on COVID-19, visit the City of Philadelphia’s Coronavirus website or the CDC website.

We will revise our policies as new information and guidance becomes available.
