COVID-19 persists, but so do we-- with necessary precautions in place to keep our visitors, staff, and volunteers safe. We will be offering guided tours for small household groups of five or less by appointment. When you call or email to request an appointment, please expect to answer a short COVID-related health questionnaire and another when you arrive for your tour. Masks and social distancing are required for all who enter the building at all times.
As medical historians with close relationships to the medical community, we know how important it is to take this pandemic seriously, and we are committed to doing everything we can to keep all of us safe while setting a good example for the community.
We are so glad to invite you back into our building to share the history of medicine in Indiana with you in person in our incredible historic site! As the pandemic and our situation changes, we will need to adjust the way we operate in order to provide a safe environment for everyone. Operations onsite may be temporarily halted again in part or whole based on current conditions.
The following rules and procedures may change, so check back before your appointment to learn what to expect during your visit.
Upon arrival for their scheduled tour, all visitors will need to be checked in by a staff member or volunteer. Temperatures of each visitor will be taken by staff with a non-contact thermometer and COVID-19 Screening Forms will be filled out and signed by each visitor upon arrival. If any visitor answers "yes" to any of the questions on the form, the group will be asked to make a new appointment at least 14 days later.
All individuals who visit the Indiana Medical History Museum are expected to follow all of the required precautions during their entire visit, and may be refused service if they fail to do so.
• Members of a household who visit together do not have to maintain 6 feet distance between one another, but they must maintain a distance of 6 feet between themselves and other visitors, Museum staff, and Museum docents at all times. It may be necessary to leave some rooms off of the tour, or only allow visitors to peek in, if maintaining this distance within the room is impossible.
