CINCINNATI — The Reds Hall of Fame and Museum presented by Dinsmore is welcoming fans and visitors back to the place where the story of Reds baseball comes alive each day.

The museum will reopen to members beginning Saturday, June 13, and to the general public on Saturday, June 20.

“Reopening the museum couldn’t come at a better time,” said Rick Walls, executive director of the Reds Hall of Fame & Museum. “We know fans are craving baseball right now, and we are committed to providing an avenue for them to experience the history of baseball in a safe, entertaining environment. We look forward to sharing the rich traditions and excitement of Reds baseball that our fans have come to expect.”

To keep visitors and staff safe, new procedures have been instituted:

• Additional and enhanced cleaning and disinfecting protocols, including more hand sanitizer stations throughout the museum as well as frequent cleaning and disinfection of touchscreen and high-contact surfaces

• Reduced capacity limits to allow for social distancing throughout the museum

• Hall of Fame staff will undergo daily temperature screenings and conduct self-health assessments, as well as wear facial coverings – visitors are also encouraged to wear face coverings
