Detroit museums prepare for July reopenings

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s COVID-19 lockdown on museums ends Monday, but don’t expect to visit your Detroit favorites until sometime in mid-July.

The Cultural Center institutions — the Detroit Historical Museum, Detroit Institute of Arts, Michigan Science Center, Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, College for Creative Studies and the Scarab Club — are coordinating their reopenings, and working with Midtown Detroit Inc. and NSF International (National Sanitation Foundation) to come up with common safety protocols.

The DIA is also contracting with NSF on its own to develop a plan suited to the museum’s particular needs.

The Henry Ford, which was not part of these discussions, is in the process of finalizing its own COVID program and is planning “on an early-July opening,” said spokesperson Melissa Foster.
