The Denver Museum of Nature & Science will reopen to the public on June 23 following a COVID-19 shut down.

The museum will offer members a preview on June 22, days before a global touring exhibit, “The Art of the Brick,” opens on the 25th.

“As restrictions lift from COVID-19, science education has never been more essential and the Denver Museum of Nature & Science is catalyzing our community forward, helping us understand how diversity in our natural world creates strength and nurtures life,” said museum president and CEO George Sparks. “We are a place for everyone, everywhere, and we can’t wait to welcome our community back to the Museum!”

The museum said it will adhere to “all public health orders regarding COVID-19” and will focus cleaning and disinfecting efforts on “high-touch areas.” Staffers will wear masks, have their temperature checked and work from home if they can.

“The Art of the Brick” is described as “a captivating exhibition featuring art made by renowned contemporary artist Nathan Sawaya from one of the most recognizable toys in the world — the LEGO brick.”

While most large cultural institutions remain closed, History Colorado announced it would open in late June as well.
