Please be respectful
While you may feel a mask isn't necessary, they are still required in the museum building. Outside you can do as you wish. We don't charge admission and it really isn't much to ask that visitors be respectful to others. The common phrases I hear is, "we're the only ones here," or "the sign doesn't say they are "required"." Well, . . . there are employees and volunteers here and the sign does say you need to put a mask on before you come in.
