HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — The U.S. Space & Rocket Center reopens to the public Saturday, May 30th at 10:00 am. Their hours this weekend will be 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
There will be social distancing guidelines in place. There will be one-directional paths through exhibits and plexiglass shields at ticketing desks.
Staff are required to wear face masks and visitors are encouraged to do the same.
They will also limit the number of visitors. They say people should purchase timed entry tickets online. Tickets will be sold at a reduced price.
Some exhibits where social distancing is not possible will stay closed. For a complete list of exhibits that are open and closed, click here.
The U.S. Space & Rocket Center has been closed for over two months causing them to lay off over 100 employees.
U.S. Space & Rocket Center spokeswoman Pat Ammons said "We had to look at what we had to have essentially to continue to go forward to continue to be there for the future, and that means even when we reopen, it will be with a much reduced staffing in place."
They have launched the fundraising campaign, "Failure is not an Option." They are seeking support from the community. You can donate any amount to the campaign. Click here for more information.
