The National Postal Museum in Washington, D.C., plans to reopen Friday, March 11.

The Smithsonian museum initially closed its doors to the public in March 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The National Postal Museum reopened on Aug. 27, 2021, but was unable to remain open because of staff shortages and renewed concerns about the pandemic. The museum closed a second time on Jan. 18.

Under its new operating schedule, the Capitol Hill facility will be open Friday through Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and closed Wednesday and Thursday.

The reopening was announced on the museum’s website.
