After more than a year of mandated closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Lancaster Museum of Art and History (MOAH) has reopened.

“This is the first of many reopenings we anticipate in the coming weeks. We are looking forward to welcoming the community back to some of our beloved activities,” said Councilmember Ra Mali. “The pandemic has strengthened our resolve and our resilience. We are moving forward together and will be stronger than ever.”

While MOAH is excited to open the museum to the public, a top priority is the health and safety of museum visitors and staff. For public and museum staff protection, visitors will be required to follow the health and safety protocols for outdoor and indoor museums at all times, along with Los Angeles County and City of Lancaster guidelines.

As such, the museum will have a limited daily capacity in alignment with the requirements of the State of California and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. All visitors, including members, will need to get advance timed-entry tickets by phone at (661) 723-6250 or online through eventbrite.com.

Visitors will be required to have their temperature checked by our staff and wear a mask covering their nose and mouth before entering the museum. While visiting the museum, all guests and staff members must maintain at least 6 feet of social distance from other guests not in their party. No food or drink will be allowed in the museum.
