We have adopted enhanced cleaning throughout the day including electrostatic fogging in all areas of all our facilities and sanitization of all surfaces at regular intervals throughout the day.
Hand sanitizing stations are found throughout all our facilities.
We are following all the recommended social distancing recommendations and have created and clearly marked new traffic flow patterns that have minimal points of intersection with clear markings and signage.
At our guest service stations, our teams will be assisting visitors from behind newly-installed sneeze guards.
WHAT REMAINS CLOSED? Because we are operating at a limited capacity, the glass blowing demonstration area of the Morean Glass Studio remains closed. Our glass artists are doing maintenance and repairs on PUFF, the glass furnace which has operated 365 days a year through hurricanes and holidays for the past ten years! The Chihuly Collection Adult admission tickets have been reduced while the glass blowing demonstrations are not available. You can find amazing locally made glass art in the Morean Glass Studio shop.
