Shedd Aquarium and Field Museum among many Chicago attractions requiring masks again

Chicago’s major museums are again requiring masks for all visitors over 2 years of age, whether or not they are vaccinated.

The Shedd Aquarium began requiring guests to wear masks on July 31. The Field Museum began requiring all building occupants over the age of 2 to wear masks from August 2. The Art Institute of Chicago also requires masks.

  • The National Museum of Mexican Art has demanded masks since it reopened on July 1.
  • The Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago requires masks.
  • The Chinese American Museum requires all visitors to wear masks, regardless of their immunization status.

  • The Polish Museum of America has been demanding masks since it reopened on May 29.
  • The Hellenic National Museum has not yet reopened; it should reopen in September.
  • The Heritage Museum of Asian Art remains closed with no reopening date.
