COVID-19 Protocols at the Bell Museum

Updated 3/20/2022

Mask Policy Update

Effective March 21, masks are welcome, but not required at the Bell Museum. Individuals may continue to wear masks at any time, and in any location, as a matter of personal protection. As a community, we will continue to respect and honor the choices of all individuals who feel more comfortable wearing a mask, are immunocompromised, or who are taking additional steps to protect their families or others.

Bell staff is happy to accommodate visitors who would like to wear a mask and will have both adult and child-sized masks available at the lobby desk.

Regulations are subject to change based on the latest advice from the Minnesota Department of Health.

We welcome healthy visitors!

Please check the health of all members of your group before leaving for the museum and do not come if anyone is feeling ill. A full refund will be given if you need to cancel for health reasons.

Eating and drinking

Food is not available on site. The Bell is located close to the commercial areas of Falcon Heights and Roseville.

Enhanced cleaning

We have enhanced cleaning throughout the exhibit spaces and Touch & See Lab for a safe visit. Spaces such as the Touch & See Lab will have capacity limitations as well as modifications to promote physical distancing and advanced cleaning.

Curiosity Shop

The Curiosity Shop is open for shopping for a selection of curated gifts and souvenirs. The shop is limited to three groups at a time to allow for physical distancing. Credit and debit card are preferred.
