COVID-19 Notice:
The International Photography Hall of Fame (IPHF) will be reopening to the public with limited hours starting July 8th. To provide a safe museum environment for our guests and staff, we are implementing critical changes in operations. Below are the steps IPHF is taking to make museum visits safe, and what we ask of our guests while visiting.


In accordance with guidelines from the City of St. Louis Department of Health, IPHF is implementing the following safety procedures:



IPHF Reopening:
  • IPHF will be reopening at 10% visitor capacity.
  • Museum operations will be reduced/limited to Wednesday through Saturday, 11am-4pm
  • Hand sanitizer stations have been set up throughout the museum for convenient use.
  • Surfaces will be disinfected regularly.


Guest Expectations:
  • We ask that our guests wear masks while visiting. Masks will be available for sale at the museum. (Children 9 and under are not required to wear a mask).
  • IPHF reserves the right to ask visitors to leave should they not wear a mask.
  • Social Distancing will be expected at IPHF.
  • If you are sick or have been exposed to someone who is sick, please stay home.


Staff requirements:
  • Daily temperature reading for employees.
  • Employees will be required to wear a mask when visitors are present.

For the safety of all our guests and team members, we ask that you follow these guidelines while visiting. There is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 while in any public place where people are present. By visiting IPHF, you are voluntarily assuming all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
