FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

Updated:  November 28, 2020

Is the museum open?

No.  We are closed temporarily.  The State of California has determined that the COVID-19 risk level in San Mateo County is classified in the pandemic tier system as “Widespread” and, according to state guidelines, cultural institutions such as indoor museums are to close, except for special programs operating under different state guidelines such as Aviation Camp.  As pandemic conditions improve we look forward to partially or fully reopening, hopefully soon.   Keep up to date with the latest details on our website.

We continue to offer several virtual options for at-home activities, which you can check out on our Hiller at Home web page.

What is the status of special events?

Some public events and programs normally planned for dates through the fall and beyond remain on our schedule but with the following caveat:  If they are not canceled, they may possibly occur in modified form based on public health considerations.  Generally, these considerations and restrictions revolve around not gathering large groups of people in order to curb the spread of COVID-19.   We continue to offer several virtual options for at-home activities, which you can check out on our Hiller at Home web page.
