CANASTOTA, N.Y. - The International Boxing Hall of Fame announced it will reopen its doors to the public on Monday, June 29th.

Closed since March 17 due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Boxing Hall postponed its 2020 Induction Ceremony this summer and its Class of 2020 will now be honored next summer.

In welcoming visitors back, the Hall of Fame has put in place new health and safety procedures following recommendations from the State of New York and public health officials.

The Hall will require all staff and fans to wear face masks within the building and will operate at 25% capacity. Also, social distancing will be enforced, there will be frequent cleaning and sanitizing, hand sanitizer will be made available, and plexiglass shields have been installed at admission check-in.

“The Hall of Fame is excited to officially ring the bell at the Museum entrance to open the doors to fans for a walk down boxing’s memory lane,” said Hall of Fame Executive Director Edward Brophy. “It’s entertaining and educational and can be enjoyed by the entire family at an affordable cost. The Hall wants to deliver a knockout punch never thrown before with everyone receiving the youth rate all summer long.”

Doors will reopen at 11 a.m. on Monday. From then until August 31st, all adult visitors will be charged the Hall of Fame's youth rate of $8.50, as opposed to the standard rate of $13.50 for adults and $11.50 for seniors. Children ages six and under are free.

Normal hours of operation will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Satudays and Sundays.
