Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission (PHMC) will begin welcoming visitors to state-owned historic sites and museums, including the Pennsylvania Military Museum, on Friday, April 30 with reduced hours of operation and limited capacity.

In the interim, the public can continue to access museum grounds for recreation. However, all facilities remain closed — including restrooms and visitor centers. All site rules and regulations apply, along with CDC and DOH guidelines regarding masking and social distancing. Gatherings are prohibited. Buildings and grounds continue to be monitored. The museum will be open 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday, closed Mondays through Thursday. Additional scheduled closings and information is available on the PA Military Museum website.
