CHESTER, Va. – Henricus Historical Park in Chesterfield plans to reopen Wednesday, June 3, in accordance with CDC and Chesterfield County guidelines.

“As an open-air, living history museum, Henricus Historical Park is well-positioned to welcome back visitors in a safe and fun environment,” a spokesperson said. “Measures will be taken to ensure the safety of both visitors and Henricus staff.”

Those measures include:

  • Visitors are encouraged to wear masks
  • Visitors are encouraged to pay by credit card
  • One-way travel pattern will be utilized to manage visitor flow
  • Rope and natural barriers will be installed to create a buffer between interpreters and visitors

“This has been a challenging period for everyone and we at Henricus are excited to finally reopen,” Charles L. Grant, Henricus Executive Director, said. “Our goal is to welcome visitors in a safe environment while maintaining the historic atmosphere and quality programming that everyone has come to expect of Henricus. It’s a balance, but one that our professional team at Henricus has rehearsed and is well prepared to execute for the benefit of the public. I hope folks will seize the opportunity to get out of the house and take in some history while enjoying the scenic beauty of Henricus and Dutch Gap.”

Henricus Historical Park will be operating on new hours of Wednesday - Sunday 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Admission is $9 per adult, $7 per child ages 3-12.
