OKLAHOMA CITY -

The public will be allowed inside of the Oklahoma National Memorial Museum for the first time since Mid-March starting at 9 a.m. Wednesday.

Museum directors said they have been testing how to operate at only 25% capacity in preparation for their reopening.

Museum staff said they're keeping everyone's safety in mind, so procedures are going to look a bit different. Only a certain number of people will be allowed in and ticketing will be timed and spaced. This will ensure visitors are not all in the same area at the same time.

Everyone will be required to wear masks and the museum is giving out personal styluses, so people can still use the interactive displays without using their hands.

Guests will be able to use a new augmented reality app and visit two new exhibits.

The Museum says the Stronger Together App features six storytellers who represent thousands impacted by the bombing inside augmented reality.

“[The] Stronger Together app shows you the very best of how people responded to this event,” said Kari Watkins with the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum.

The museum said guests who have already purchased a ticket can use the new parking facility for free located near Northwest 6th Street and North Harvey Avenue.
