The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame is the latest Fort Worth museum to reopen as it opens its doors to the public amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Wednesday's reopening of the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame follows the earlier reopenings of the Amon Carter Museum and Kimball Art Museum on June 19 and 20, respectively.
A fourth Fort Worth museum, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, is scheduled for a July 1 reopening, and the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History is planning for a mid-July reopening.
As outlined in an executive order by Tarrant County Judge Glenn Whitley, face masks are required to enter the museum, along with any other business in the county. Exceptions to the requirement include children under the age of 10, people who are eating or drinking and people who have a medical condition and are unable to wear a mask safely.
To support cleaning efforts, the museum is opening from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
