Covid-19 FAQ’s

Are you open yet?

We will be open to the public starting on October 3rd, 2020.

Can I make an advance reservation?

At this time we are not taking advance reservations. Our research into Children’s Museums that re-opened before we did tells us that we can expect 10-20% of our normal visitor numbers. This should keep us within comfortable numbers for visitors to maintain social distancing. If we find that staff or visitors are feeling that the museum is too crowded, we will implement a system for advance reservations. Mornings tend to be the busiest time at the museum, we recommend that you plan an afternoon visit if you would like to visit at our least busy time.

Are Masks Required?

We ask that visitors ages 5 and up wear face covering while they visit the museum. We recommend but do not require masks for visitors ages 2-4. We hope that playing at the museum can be an opportunity for younger children to practice mask wearing while they are having fun playing! The CDC recommends that children under 2 do not wear face coverings.

Are you extending memberships?

Because of our extended closure, all membership expiration dates will be extended by 6 months. We will continue to honor membership cards past their expiration dates, but if you plan to use the reciprocal program at another museum past your original expiration date, please visit the front desk to have a new card made.

Are you offering birthday parties?

We are offering birthday parties as private events only to avoid crowding the museum by having regular guests and party groups at the same time. Private parties are available on Sundays, and can be booked by visiting the Birthday Parties tab.
