The Maritime Museum of San Diego announced they will reopen its indoor exhibits and below deck galleries on June 15.
As well as below deck reopening, the USS dolphin submarine will open too.
“We are thrilled to reopen our indoor visitor areas after temporary closure of these popular spaces for fifteen months to comply with state guidelines during the pandemic," said Raymond Ashley, President and CEO of the museum. "Thanks to our generous donors, members, community of supporters, dedicated staff and volunteers, we have survived this pandemic and together eager to welcome back local San Diego and visitors’ alike to our immersive waterfront experience."
Additional sanitation, disinfection and cleaning procedures will continue even with the lift of state health guidelines, the museum said.
