With careful consideration, and safeguards to protect our visitors, the UMLAUF Sculpture Garden + Museum has determined that it's safe to reopen our doors to Members only on Tuesday, June 2, 2020 and to the public on Saturday, June 6 with a limit of 30 visitors in the garden at a time. Following the health and safety guidelines from state and local officials, we have put into place necessary safeguards and limits to ensure that both visitors and staff are as protected as possible during this time.
We are excited to invite the community back to the UMLAUF while maintaining high safety standards. We want to welcome our visitors while ensuring a fun and safe experience for all. For those who are unable to visit us at this time, we hope you will explore the many Virtual Programs available on our website and social media platforms.
