Safety Policy

Here at the Institute for American Indian Studies, we are thrilled to be exhibiting, engaging, and eliciting thought provoking dialogue with our guests about the 12,000 plus history of Indigenous peoples here in Connecticut – In person (and sometimes 6 feet apart)! Our exhibits are open, with some adjustments to some spaces to accommodate regulations.

Based on recent CDC guidance, we are updating the museum’s mask policy to optional. This mask policy is subject to change based on CDC guidelines and COVID variants.


IAIS is developing up-to-date policies for our summer camp in 2022, based on guidelines released by the Centers for Disease Control, Connecticut’s Office of Early Childhood and the American Camp Association. Given the fluid nature of the COVID-19 situation, families should be aware that any policies are subject to change. We appreciate your support, understanding and patience with regard to this matter.
