COVID19 Response


February 19, 2021


Dear UHM Members and Friends,

Thank you for your continued support as we navigate the stream of COVID-related changes that are taking place.

Since reopening last June, we have remained vigilant in our efforts to prioritize the health and safety of our visitors and staff.

We take seriously our responsibility to maintain our facilities in order to provide a place where members, guests and staff can feel safe during their visit to the Museum.

In addition to adhering to the recommended standards from the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Upcountry History Museum has also taken the Greater Greenville Pledge affirming our commitment to the uniform health and safety protocols.

Further, the Museum has implemented additional safety practices including a mandatory mask requirement for visitors ages 10 years and older; enhanced cleaning and frequency of disinfecting high-traffic surfaces; and an increased number of hand-sanitizer stations throughout the building.

Our earlier enacted measures of advanced online ticket purchases, touch-free check in for online ticket purchasers, and social distancing guidelines throughout the Museum have proven effective and continue to be observed. We are confident that the measures we have in place will allow you to fully explore and experience the rich history of the Upcountry.

Steadfast in our belief that Museums are essential to our communities, we are committed to staying the course by holding true to our mission of connecting people, history, and culture.
