The Long Island Museum Will Reopen on September 12th

to Members and Welcome Back the Public on September 25th

The Museum Will Offer Free Admission, Limited Capacity,
and Enhanced Safety Precautions
After being temporarily closed since March due to the coronavirus pandemic, The Long Island Museum (LIM) has announced it will begin to welcome back current Museum members on Saturday, September 12th and the general public on Friday, September 25th. As a gift to the community the LIM is offering free admission for the remainder of the year. 
“Closing our doors to our community over five months ago was a difficult moment,” said Neil Watson, Executive Director of the Long Island Museum. “The Long Island Museum thrives on bringing music, art and history to our surrounding neighbors and we have missed sharing and connecting with our schools and visitors. While we are excited to welcome back our community, we do so with the utmost caution, safety and responsibility.” 
Visitors are welcome to explore the Carriage Museum and Art Museum; however, the History Museum will remain closed. To help ensure public safety and limited capacity, the LIM will require timed ticket registration. Visitors must register for Museum admission online in advance. Timed admission will be available for: Friday – Sunday 12:00 – 2:00 p.m. and 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. To register online click here longislandmuseum.org
The LIM will reopen with modified hours; Friday – Sunday 12:00 p.m. to 5 p.m. Physical distancing will be required and all visitors and staff must wear face masks at all times while on site. The LIM follows CDC-prescribed cleaning protocols for all buildings and will clean bathrooms and high-touch surfaces after each visitation session.  
In addition to exploring The Carriage Museum, which includes eight renovated galleries that tell the story of transportation before the automobile, visitors can also explore the Art Museum where the exhibition Off the Rack: Building and Preserving LIM’s Art Treasures is on display. This exhibition features highlights from the Museum’s art collection which consists of more than 500 paintings and 2,000 works on paper. 
Visitors can find a full list of available Museum experiences and learn more about what to expect during a visit by visiting the Museum’s website at: https://longislandmuseum.org or by clicking here for the LIM’s Visitor Guide.


Located at 1200 Route 25A in Stony Brook, the Long Island Museum is a Smithsonian Affiliate dedicated to enhancing the lives of adults and children with an understanding of Long Island’s rich history and diverse cultures. Modified museum hours are Friday through Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Admission is free. For more information visit: longislandmuseum.org.
