Reopening Policies and Procedure
Months ago, The Schiele put together a museum reopening plan to detail how we will work to keep the public and our staff safe in our reopening process. This will require limited, timed tickets to control visitor flow and regular sanitizing of the building. Visitors will also be required to wear a mask while utilizing the indoor and exterior exhibits of the museum as well as maintain appropriate social distancing.
