BOSTON (AP) — Plimoth Plantation, the Massachusetts living history museum that highlights the lives of the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Tribe soon after the arrival of the Mayflower in 1620, is reopening this week.

The museum’s outdoor areas and a limited number of buildings are opening to members on Wednesday and to the general public on Thursday, according to a release on its website. The Plymouth facility closed in mid-March in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Capacity at the 30-acre site is limited and management is asking visitors to purchase tickets in advance.

Visitors are asked to wear masks, follow one-way pathways and stay distant from other parties. The museum is also placing hand santizing stations throughout the facility. Employees will also wear masks.

The museum’s Patuxet Wampanoag Homesite, 17th-century English village, the barn and animal pastures and gardens are opening.
Plimoth Plantation is open seven days a week.
