The Florence County Museum Board after carefully monitoring the rate of COVID-19 in Florence County, South Carolina and engaging in ongoing discussions with Florence County Administration and Florence Count Emergency Management announced the reopening of the Florence County Museum on Tuesday, November 3, 2020.

To help ensure physical distancing and a safe, comfortable experience, we will be limiting the number of visitors in the museum, and ask all visitors to follow current city, county, and state guidelines as issued.

We have been preparing during our closure to safely reopen our doors and are confident in the comprehensive safety measures we’ve put into place for a safe reopening.

We will be following the CDC’s recommended guidelines, in addition to the following visitor guidelines to help keep you, our staff, and our community  safe:

The Florence County Museum reopened with the following visitor guidelines in place:

• Physical distancing reminders

• Cleaning and disinfecting protocols

• Do not enter the museum if you feel sick or have a temperature over 100
