Plan Your Visit

What To Know Before You Go To Intuit

Friday, June 11, the City of Chicago enters Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois reopening plan with the State of Illinois, which eases previous COVID-19 procedures. This weekend, June 11–13, the museum’s existing health and safety procedures—including face coverings—remain in place until Intuit announces our revised guest expectations and operations early next week. Thank you for your patience and understanding as Intuit continues to reopen with the safety of our community in mind. 

Safety Precautions

  • Self-identify whether you exhibit symptoms and stay home if you feel tired, ill or symptomatic
  • Reserve timed-entry tickets in advance
  • Wear a face covering over your mouth and nose 
  • Practice social distancing of at least six feet from others
  • Follow the signage with directional flow and safety precautions
  • Wash and sanitize your hands frequently with soap and water or hand sanitizer

Advanced, timed-entry tickets and face coverings are required to enter the museum.

Cleaning procedures

  • Intuit reduced the number of high touch points throughout the museum.
  • Staff members will sanitize high touch points and shared surfaces before and after individual use as well as frequently throughout the day in compliance with CDC protocols.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available at stations throughout the museum.

Changes to Intuit

  • Intuit staff installed our current exhibitions to create more space to facilitate traffic flow that will allow guests to experience and enjoy the art while safely distancing themselves from others.
  • Intuit installed physical barriers, such as plexiglass, at the admissions desk and the Intuit Store.
  • The bag and coat check are temporarily closed.

“Be safe. Chicago” certification

Intuit utilized the arts and culture industry guidelines put in place by the city government to develop our reopening policies and procedures. We understand the city’s business operational standards for each phase of reopening, and we created a reopening business plan that is compliant with the city’s standards. By completing the self-certification survey, Intuit indicated our ability and willingness to comply and commit to the “Be Safe. Chicago” guidelines during the city’s reopening.
