How to properly wear a medical mask.


In all circumstances, visitors age 5 years and over are required to wear a mask or other close-fitting face covering over the nose and mouth. Visitors who are unable or unwilling to wear a mask are asked to postpone their visit until mask-wearing is no longer required. This policy has been adopted for the health and safety of visitors and staff; Museum staff will also be wearing masks.


Please note: BVMNH reserves the right to require that visitors who do not follow our mask policy, or the safety guidelines or instructions from our staff, leave the premises. Failure to comply with this policy or rude or aggressive behavior will not be tolerated.

The Brazos Center is a COVID-19 Vaccination Hub and operates Monday—Friday, 8am - 6pm by appointment only. Vaccinations are both inside the Brazos Center and outside via a drive-thru in the 3rd parking bay.

The Museum is open its normal hours, and visitors should inform Hub Volunteers at the checkpoint that they are here for the Museum. They will then be directed to park in the 2nd parking bay.

When exiting the parking lot, visitors will be directed to exit through the back of the Target strip mall in the right lane.

The Museum does not schedule vaccination appointments. For information about securing a vaccination
