Update (As of February 2, 2021)
To protect the health of those who live, work and visit the national parks and facilities, and in support of the President’s Executive Order on Protecting the Federal Workforce and Requiring Mask-Wearing, the National Park Service (NPS) has implemented a mask requirement for employees, visitors, partners and contractors.
When visiting the Independence National Historical Park, please remember to wear your mask. Also practice safe distance and stay 6 feet away from other people enjoying the Park. If it helps, imagine that George Washington (he was 6’2”) is laying on the ground and his feet are at your feet. You do not want anyone closer to you than the top of his head!
On January 4, 2021, Independence National Historical Park began re-opening buildings. To see which buildings are open to visitors, visit nps.gov/inde
