Safety Measures and Protocols:

Beginning November 4, 2021, the City of Los Angeles is requiring that all visitors ages 12+ visiting museums must show proof of full vaccination with a Covid-19 vaccine.

Full vaccination is defined as:

  • 14 or more days after receiving a second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna Covid-19 vaccine or
  • 14 or more days after receiving a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson Janssen Covid-19 vaccine
  • For a foreign visitor or traveler, 14 or more days after receiving a Covid-19 vaccine authorized by the World Health Organization.

Proof of vaccination:
  • Your vaccination card
  • A photo of your vaccination card as a separate physical photograph or stored on a phone or other electronic device.
  • Documentation of vaccination from a licensed healthcare provider
  • A personal digital Covid-19 vaccine record issued by the State of California or similar documentation issued by another state, local, or foreign government jurisdictions, or by a private company. CA residents can visit the State of California's Digital Covid-19 Vaccine Record website and download a QR Code on a phone
  • AND all visitors ages 18+ must provide photo ID such as driver's license, government-issued ID, school or work ID card or passport.

A visitor may be exempt if they are entitled to a reasonable accommodation for a medical condition or restriction or a sincerely held religious belief. Visitors must meet both of the following requirements:
  • To be eligible for an exemption, a visitor must provide a self-attestation that the visitor has a medication condition or restriction or a sincerely held religious belief that qualifies them for the exemption. AND
  • Provide proof of negative Covid-19 test within 72 hours prior to your visit. Proof means a printed document, email or text message displayed on a phone, from a test provider or laboratory that shows results of a PCR or antigen test. 
    • Home tests that provide proof of negative Covid-19 test through a laboratory, healthcare entity, or telehealth service will be accepted.

If you are unable to meet the above requirements at this time, we look forward to welcoming you to the museum at a later date.

In Addition:

Starting July 18, 2021 the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) re-implemented the mandate requiring everyone to wear masks while indoors, regardless of vaccination status. The Museum of Tolerance will adhere to this mandate and masks will be required to be properly worn (covering your nose and mouth) Masks Info graphic.pdf at all times in the museum by staff, security, volunteers and public.

  • Face coverings with two or more layers of washable, tightly woven, breathable fabric must be worn over the mouth and nose at all times when indoors throughout your visit — except children under the age of two.
  • In accordance with Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, face coverings or respirators with one way valves, single-layer face coverings such as mesh masks, bandanas, neck gaiters and scarves, or any cloth not designed to function as a face cover, such as t-shirts or towels, are not permitted forms of face coverings. Face shields are also not allowed instead of a mask, but may be worn over one. 
  • Those instructed not to wear a cloth face covering by a medical provider are invited to visit the museum at another time when it is deemed safe to do so.

As part of our commitment to your health and safety during your visit, the museum is implementing a number of measures, including:

  • Improved central air filtration and increasing the MERV rating (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) on all the HVAC filters to a MERV 11 which captures 1.0 to 3.0 micron particles 
  • Enhanced cleaning protocols including but not limited to frequent cleaning of high-touch surfaces and the use of EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) registered sanitation and disinfectant products for cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting
