For health and safety, the museum is managing event and theater capacity to facilitate social distancing. Per City of Columbia Ordinance, guests are required to wear a face covering.

Please note: Per CDC guidelines, a costume mask cannot be used as a substitute for a face covering unless it is made of two or more layers of breathable fabric that covers your mouth and nose and does not leave gaps around your face. The CDC also recommends that people do not wear a costume mask over a face covering because it can be dangerous if the costume mask makes it hard to breath. Instead, consider using a Halloween-themed face covering.
