Museum And Aquarium Reopens This Weekend

The National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium in Dubuque has been closed for over two months because of the coronavirus pandemic, but with the Governor’s announcement this week that more essential businesses can reopen with safety measures in place, the museum and aquarium is poised to do just that. Today it will open to members only and then to the general public on Saturday. Wendy Scardino, director of marketing and communications says things will look a little different. One of those differences is the implementation of a timed-ticket system that requires visitors to purchase tickets in advance and allowing for a touchless entry at the box office. Only one box office will be open and it’s located at the Discovery Center building next to the paddlewheel. All staff are required to wear masks and have their temperature taken prior to their shift. Visitors are also encouraged to wear masks. Films and animal touch has been temporarily suspended, and cafes will remain closed and carry-in food and drinks are prohibited for now.
