Visitor Guidelines

During your visit, please be mindful of the following:

Face coverings

The museum adopts the following policy in accordance with the University of Maryland, Baltimore’s policy in the interest of minimizing risk of spread of COVID-19 among our visitors, staff, and community. Face coverings are optional at the NMD for guests and our staff in alignment with the lifting of the mask mandate in Baltimore City on Marh 1, 2022. “Face covering” means a covering that fully covers a person’s nose and mouth. Bandanas, gaiters, scarves, and masks with valves are not approved face coverings at NMD. Masks are available upon request at the Admissions desk.
