For the safety of our volunteers, visitors and broader community, the Holocaust Museum & Cohen Education Center has made the decision to temporarily close the Museum starting Saturday, March 14 for two weeks. We will re-evaluate the length and scope of the closure during that time. Updates will be posted on our website.
As you may know, the Museum relies on dozens of volunteers to welcome guests, serve as docents, and organize programs. We want to be sure that everyone has the option to opt-out of crowds. We will be in touch with teachers regarding field trips and options for rescheduling as needed.
We know this decision will have a financial impact on the Museum as it lands during our busiest time of year for visitors to the Museum. Fortunately, I am constantly reminded of the generous spirit of our Museum supporters and I know we can all work together to help keep friends and families safe, our organizations sustainable and our future bright.
We will be adding new content to our website, such as articles and videos as an alternative to attending Museum programs during this closure.
Staff will be working in the office or remotely. Please call or email the office if you need to meet with a staff member.
We will keep you posted as we continue to monitor the COVID-19 contagion threat. We are continuing to follow the CDC and Florida Department of Health recommendations.
