Masking Policy

Masks are encouraged but not required for visitors in all The Phillips Collection’s spaces.

The Phillips will continue to monitor and follow local and national recommendations. We reserve the right to implement health and safety measures to ensure the safety of our staff and visitors.


Health and Safety Protocols

The Phillips Collection will continue to clean and sanitize high-traffic areas throughout the museum.

  • Reduced Visitor Capacity: Visitor capacity in the galleries is controlled and reduced.
  • Contactless Check-in: Ticketing is by advance reservation for non-members, and tickets are emailed to guests and are scanned for entry at a safe distance. 
  • Enhanced Cleaning Procedures: There is regular disinfection of high-touch surfaces, and bathrooms are cleaned frequently throughout the day.
  • Hand Sanitizer Stations: Hand sanitizer stations are located throughout the museum. Visitors are encouraged to hand-wash frequently with soap and water.
  • Staff Health Checks: Phillips Collection staff are currently required to wear masks at all times.
  • Enhanced Ventilation: Our ventilation and climate control systems are circulating outside air using enhanced filtration.

An inherent risk of exposure to covid-19 exists in any public space where people are present. We cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed to covid-19 during your visit to The Phillips Collection. Those visiting the Phillips do so at their own risk of such exposure.


Visitor Experience

  • Face masks are encouraged, but not required. The Phillips asks that you stay at home if you are feeling sick. Please do not visit the museum if you have a fever or any covid-19 symptoms, have tested positive for covid-19 within the past 14 days, or have had close contact with anyone who is confirmed or is suspected of having covid-19.
  • Phillips Collection Staff: Please follow instructions from Phillips Collection staff during your visit.

The Phillips Collection’s protocols may change as we continue to follow local and national recommendations.
