In line with the arts and live performance sector guidelines updated by the Victorian Government on 18 November, the Islamic Museum of Australia (IMA) is pleased to announce the following updates to our COVID-19 response:

Visitors aged 12 years and 2 months and over must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or have a valid medical exemption, in line with the Chief Health Officer’s directions. Patrons must provide this proof to Museum staff on arrival. Learn more about providing proof of a child’s vaccination status.

Primary and secondary school students up to the age of 16 years who are visiting the Museum with a teacher as part of an excursion are exempt from this condition of entry.

Masks are only required when patrons are visiting the Museum gift shop behind the reception.

Density limits inside the Museum have been removed, and our venues have returned to full capacity. Learn more about venue hire.

The health and safety of our staff, volunteers and guests is our highest priority. The IMA continues to adhere to a regular cleaning schedule for all common area surfaces throughout the day.

Further, we ask that our guests please assist us by:

  • Providing proof of your full COVID-19 vaccination if you are aged 16+ upon arrival, or providing proof of a valid medical exemption.
  • Performing a temperature check on arrival.
  • Sanitising your hands immediately after entering the Museum. Sanitising stations are located in the front and rear foyers, and throughout the Museum.
  • Maintaining social distancing of 1.5 metres where possible.
  • Sanitising your hands or wear gloves (available from reception) before using interactive surfaces, including touchscreens and the chess board.
  • Postponing your visit if you have a fever, flu-like symptoms or a confirmed case of COVID-19, have been to an exposure site or are a close contact of someone with COVID-19, or if you are currently not fully vaccinated against COVID-19, unless you have a medical exemption.
