Smithsonian Temporarily Closes Zoo and All Museums Due to COVID Surge
“Due to rising regional and national cases related to the COVID-19 pandemic, all Smithsonian museums, including the National Zoo, will temporarily close to the public starting Monday, Nov. 23.
We are not announcing a reopening date at this time, and will share updates on social media and our website, si.edu. Visitors who had reserved timed-entry passes to visit at a future date are being contacted directly.

While our spaces are closed, you can always experience the Smithsonian online. Explore millions of pieces from across our collections, plus online exhibitions, videos and more: si.edu/online.
We also have free, quality resources from Smithsonian Education for teachers, students and caregivers. These focus on pre-K through 12 education, including low-tech and no-tech options and some Spanish/English learning resources: learninglab.si.edu/distancelearning.”
