BRATTLEBORO — After three months of closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center reopens to the public Thursday.

The museum, which has been closed since March 15, will be open Wednesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Visitors will be required to wear face coverings and maintain physical distance from one another and museum staff.

In recognition of the financial uncertainty during the pandemic, admission will be on a "pay-as-you-wish" basis.

Eight new exhibits opened on March 14, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, they were closed the next day and have gone unseen in the months since. Those exhibits were originally scheduled to come down in June, but have been extended through Oct. 12.

The museum, at 10 Vernon St. (the intersection of Main Street and Routes 119 and 142), is wheelchair accessible. For more information, call 802-257-0124 or visit
