HRNM Museum Re-opening gallery image 


What will we see at Hampton Roads Naval Museum?

Visitors can experience our newest exhibit, “The Ten Thousand-Day War: The U.S. Navy in Vietnam, 1950 – 1975.” HRNM also has exhibits highlighting the early history of the U.S. Navy in Hampton Roads.

How has Hampton Roads Naval Museum prepared for visitors?

As an official Department of the Navy museum, HRNM has followed all Department of Defense (DoD) regulations pertaining to COVID-19 and personal safety. HRNM has worked hard to create a welcoming and enjoyable experience for our visitors.

We have installed regularly spaced hand sanitation stations throughout the museum. We have incorporated signage to remind our guests we are all working together to encourage social distancing. We will have staff and volunteers on site to offer assistance and answer questions.

Staff, volunteers and visitors to our gallery will be required to follow current DoD face covering requirements. HRNM staff will sanitize all frequently touched as needed throughout the day.

How should visitors prepare to visit HRNM?

Social distancing is recommended for any other staff, visitors, or volunteers.

Our galleries offer ample opportunity to experience our exhibits while maintaining a recommended six feet of distance.

If you are experiencing any symptoms or illness, please visit us at a later time.

Consider postponing your visit if you have a fever, cough, have been traveling in the last two weeks, or if you were exposed to someone suspected of having COVID-19. Hampton Roads Naval Museum has a wealth of online videos and posts for your enjoyment.

Help us follow best practices while you are in the museum.

·       Practice social distancing, and keep your mask in place. 

·       Avoid touching surfaces like cases, artifacts, or signage.

·       Use the hand sanitizer made available throughout the gallery.

Stay as long as you like and enjoy all of the exciting exhibits we offer to learn about the history of the U.S. Navy.

We are free to the public, and are fully staffed to assure visitors have a safe and wonderful visit.
