The Walt Disney Family Museum Temporarily Closed Through March 8th Due To Coronavirus Concerns

Due to growing concerns over the Coronavirus outbreak in the United States, The Walt Disney Family Museum has announced that it will be closed through Sunday, March 8th.

The museum released a statement saying that during the closure, the San Francisco-based museum will “conduct a deep cleaning and sanitation of all museum spaces and add further protocols and precautions.”

All programming through Sunday will be cancelled or rescheduled, and ticket-holders will receive communication regarding refunds.

In a statement, museum Executive Director Kirsten Komoroske said, “I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience, but the health and well-being of our guests, staff, and community are our primary concern. We thank everyone for your support of the museum during this time, and we send you and your families our best wishes.”

The museum invited guests to review the CDC-issued guidelines and the CDC’s travel alert list related to COVID-19.

This is far from the first Disney-related attraction to close over the Coronavirus outbreak. Shanghai Disney Resort and Hong Kong Disneyland Resort are currently closed indefinitely, while Tokyo Disney Resort has temporarily closed until March 15th.
