COVID Safety Protocols

The Museum does not require visitors to show proof of COVID vaccination nor wear masks inside the Museum. Masks remain encouraged and welcome for visitors.

This policy also applies to events hosted at the Museum, group tours, and any other organized gathering. 

Student groups are required to follow the guidelines from their local school. As of the implementation of this policy, masks in schools are not a universal requirement across Illinois, nor other local states. We will continue to encourage field trips and other student groups to wear masks. Teachers and other school staff chaperoning field trips or other events will be responsible for their groups’ mask policy. 

The Museum provides hand sanitizer to all visitors upon entry. During your visit, feel free to use any of the additional hand sanitizing stations throughout the Museum.

We maintain high relative humidity levels in the Museum, which naturally inhibits the spread of COVID-19. Our air filtering system utilizes MERV 14 air filters, which exceed recommended standards and contribute to a hygienic environment.


  • Please reserve your tickets online before arriving at the Museum. Please call 847.967.4800 if you require assistance.
  • One at a time: Visitors will be admitted one party at a time. If you are visiting as a household group, please enter the Museum together.
  • Plan ahead: Please note that we are open Wednesday through Monday, 10 am through 5 pm, with last entry at 4 pm.


We offer digital versions of Museum maps and a self-guided tour brochure, as well as audio tours on the Illinois Holocaust Museum app (available in the App Store and on Google Play). Please bring your headphones or earbuds to take advantage of the audio tour during your visit.

There is FREE WiFi available in the Museum.
