Interpretive Center Opens July 15th

We are very happy to finally announce that we will re-open the Interpretive Center (IC) with restrictions on Wednesday July 15. In our effort to maintain progress in overcoming COVID-19 in our community, we ask that you adhere to the new protocols. If you are not willing to do so, we ask that you schedule a private tour (taking place at our convenience). The IC will be open Wednesday through Sunday from 9:00 – 5:00 pm. We will offer two tours of the grounds per day, on an RSVP basis only, at 10:00 am and 1:00 pm. In order to enter the IC, you must be symptom-free, be wearing a face covering, and practice social distancing while inside or waiting to enter. Face coverings are not required on kids nine and under or if you have a doctor’s note indicating you are unable to wear one. The only other exception will be visitors with physical limitations that are unable to use a face covering. There will only be 50 people allowed in the IC at any given time. Once the capacity is reached, you will be asked to wait outside until visitors leave before being permitted inside. There is one entrance and one exit on each side of the building. All interactive gallery exhibits will be closed and we will not be showing the Orientation Film at this time. We have increased cleaning frequency, will be sanitizing restrooms and high-touch items throughout the day, and will be adhering to general CDC and IDPH guidelines in an effort to mitigate the spread of pathogens. The new protocols will be strictly enforced, please help us do our part in reducing the spread of COVID-19. Welcome back to Cahokia Mounds!
