The New Jersey arts venue most conducive to social distancing — the 42-acre Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton (Mercer County) — will reopen on July 16, for members only. No date has been set yet for when non-members can attend.
Admission will be timed, and tickets must be purchased in advance, online.
About 270 sculptures can be seen on the museum’s grounds. All indoor exhibitions and buildings will remain closed, with the exception of restrooms. The on-site Rat’s Restaurant will be open for outdoor dining only, with reservations required.
For information, visit groundsforsculpture.org.
Most New Jersey museums currently remain closed because of the pandemic, though the Morris Museum in Morris Township recently announced its opening plans as well.
