Age of Steam to Resume Tours on June 18

The Age of Steam Roundhouse Museum announced on Friday that it will reopen for public tours on June 18.

Tickets will go on sale next week and must be purchased in advance at the museum’s website.

The announcement also said that no walk-in visitors will be allowed and other rules have been implemented in consultation with the Ohio Department of Health.

This includes limiting tour sizes to no more than eight people. Visitors will be required to wait in their vehicles or on the parking lot until 10 minutes before tour time.

All visitors and staff will be expected to adhere to social distancing requirements as determined by the State of Ohio.

Although museum staff must wear masks at all times when interacting with visitors, mask wearing by visitors is encouraged but not required.

Cleaning protocols have been institutes for public areas, including restrooms and the gift shop with a deep cleaning conducted once a week by an outside professional cleaning service.

Upon completion of their tour, visitors are advised against re-entering the depot building unless there is a need to use the restroom facilities. This should be done one at a time.

The museum said it will reschedule cancelled special tour programs for later this summer.
