The James Museum, an exquisitely designed museum in downtown St. Petersburg, will officially reopen to members June 11 and 12, and will reopen to the public on June 13. Museum officials made the announcement on Twitter on June 5, the same day Phase II of Reopening began in the state of Florida.

This downtown cultural institution hasn’t been quiet throughout the pandemic. The James Museum has reached the community through virtual events, educational outreach, and participating Light Up with Pride, and lighting up blue in support of our first responders and essential workers through the pandemic.

How does The James Museum plan to reopen?

New safety precautions have been put in place to protect museum staff and guests.

Visitors, staff and volunteers are required to wear face coverings while inside the museum. The museum recommends that children ages 2 to 12 wear face coverings and does not require face coverings for children under the age of 2.

When entering the museum, visitor temperatures will be screened using a touch-free device. Visitors with a fever of 100.4 degrees or more will be asked to return when they are well.

The museum is also temporarily not accepting cash. Water fountains have been disabled at the museum. Complimentary water bottles are available at the admissions desk and museum shop.
