Jamestown Rediscovery announced Friday plans to reopen Historic Jamestowne on June 29.
The historic site and museum have been closed since March 13 because of coronavirus concerns.
“The safety of visitors, staff, and volunteers is our number one priority and we have been working hard over the last several months to devise measures that will allow us to reopen,” Jim Horn, president of Jamestown Rediscovery, said in a prepared statement. “All of us very much look forward to welcoming visitors to the site; it will be a slightly different experience but just as compelling and informative.”
Tickets cost $10 for adults and children 15 years old and younger are free. Buy tickets here starting June 22 or pay with a card at the museum.
Some changes to visitation include having all programs outside with social distancing including staff presentations and living history performances and limiting the amount of people in the Memorial Church, according to the news release.
Hand sanitizing stations are also on site, ticketing is outside the visitor center and guests are asked to wear masks around staff.
The plans may change depending on the Virginia Department of Health, Gov. Ralph Northam or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance.
