San José Museum of Art is committed to providing a safe, healthy space for our community. Visitors 2 years and older are encouraged to wear a mask. Following the CDC’s recommendations, SJMA suggests using an N95, KN95, KF94, surgical or cloth mask with at least 2–3 layers of fabric. Cloth masks with only one layer, bandanas, and neck gaiters are not permitted.
To ensure the safety of visitors, volunteers, docents, and staff, SJMA has devised a comprehensive health and safety plan that is compliant with Santa Clara County Health Department and CDC guidelines. Please review these changes before you visit and thank you for helping us make your Museum visit easy, enjoyable, and safe. We will carefully and continually monitor the efficacy of these guidelines in real time and make further adjustments as needed.
Know Before You Go!
- Visitors are encouraged to wear a mask.
- Social distancing of 6 feet must be practiced by all visitors except members of the same household.
- Hand-washing and/or sanitizing is encouraged before and after touching your face and/or public spaces.
- And remember, if you’re feeling ill, please stay home.
To reduce physical contact, SJMA encourages purchasing tickets in advance, or using a credit card upon arrival. To expedite the check-in process, reduce lines at admissions, and assist with “low touch” entry, please have your eticket pre-printed or ready to be scanned on your phone. Have your ID ready for tickets requiring ID.
Sanitation and Cleaning
The cleaning frequency has been increased with special attention to high-traffic and high-touch areas. Doorways, buttons, etc. will be disinfected throughout the day.
Be on the lookout for QR codes while onsite to access Museum information available digitally from the convenience of your mobile device.
Other Safety Measures
Museum staff in direct contact with visitors will maintain safe distances in all spaces while wearing face masks. Further, we have installed Plexiglass screens at the admissions desk to serve as an additional protective measure for visitors and staff.
