Due to ongoing concerns about COVID-19, effective immediately, The Norman E. Borlaug Hall of Laureates will discontinue public tours and will close the facility to the public until at least April 15. The health and safety of Hall of Laureates visitors, staff and volunteers is a top priority. Due to the rapidly changing nature of the situation, we will carefully monitor and follow national, state and city restrictions and recommendations, announcing a date to reopen as soon as prudent. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
We understand the important benefit of this facility to our community, and are eager to provide educational resources to the many who were scheduled to visit the Hall of Laureates during this time. We invite the public to explore the Hall of Laureates’ online resources by viewing the videos below or by visiting our website at www.halloflaureates.org.
We strongly encourage everyone to follow guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the local health department. Up-to-date information regarding COVID-19 can be found on the CDC website and the Iowa Department of Public Health website.
Please check back frequently on our website, as we will continue to post developments related directly to our programs - www.worldfoodprize.org/updates.
