Milwaukee, WI – July 16, 2020 – After over three months of closure and much thoughtful preparation, the Charles Allis and Villa Terrace Art Museums will be reopening to the public on July 29. “The health and safety of our guests and staff are our highest priority,” says Executive Director John Sterr. “Precautions have been taken to mitigate risks of the coronavirus based on current government health and safety guidelines.” Admittance will be by online reservation only and visitors will be required to wear a face mask during their visit as well as keep a six foot social distance from others when possible.

In addition, the entire museum staff will be wearing masks and new and more frequent cleaning protocols have been put in place. Timed reservations will allow the museums to monitor capacity, giving visitors the social distance and time they need to explore the museums and gardens. Reservations can be made at each museum’s webpage beginning Friday, July 17.

Although this will be a different experience than museum visitors have been used to in the past, the Charles Allis and Villa Terrace Arts Museums know that sharing the beauty and history of the mansions, art collections and gardens is important now more than ever. Added Sterr, “The hope is that in reopening these cultural gems there can be refuge for repose and reflection in these times of uncertainty.” The staff deeply appreciates the patience and cooperation of its museum guests and looks forward to welcoming them back.
