Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

The Carter is dedicated to prioritizing the health and safety of our staff and community as we consider the optimal path towards reopening. The museum will remain closed at this time and our on- and off-site events are canceled until further notice. During this preparation period, we are considering new health and safety protocols that will need to be established in order to ensure proper social distancing measures. We look forward to welcoming audiences back to the museum at a later date, and we will announce our plans to reopen as soon as we know we are able to do so safely.

What is the Carter doing?

  • The museum is closed until further notice. We will announce our plans to reopen as soon as we know we are able to do so safely.
  • Events, both on- and off-site, are canceled until further notice.
  • We are disinfecting surfaces and cleaning high-touch and high-traffic areas more frequently.

Even though our doors may be closed, we are creating new ways for you to bring the Carter to your crib! Our new Cooped Up with the Carter video series brings you virtual learning and art-making experiences that anyone can do with supplies you have around your house! Check it out on our YouTube channel, and keep an eye out as we share new episodes through email and social media.

We will maintain continued assessment of the situation and make decisions in the coming weeks on any additions or changes to our event calendar and the reopening of the Carter to the public. These changes will be made based on the recommendations and guidelines set in place by local, regional, and national government and health officials. 

Further updates will be shared via email, on our website, and on our social media channels. For information on recommendations on the coronavirus (COVID-19) and precautions to take, we recommend visiting the CDC website.
