Coronavirus (COVID-19) Community Message

Mask Policy Update – August 6, 2021

Beginning Monday, August 9th

Due to the circulating and highly contagious Delta variant, universal indoor masking by all children (age 2 and older), staff, and visitors, regardless of vaccination status will be required.

Inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.

Visitors to the expERIEnce Children’s Museum agree to adhere to our guidelines and voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

The Children’s Museum relies entirely on earned revenue, donor contributions and grants.  The majority of the Museum’s budget (65%) comes from admission, membership, program, and gift shop sales.

Please make a gift today to ensure the Children’s Museum can continue to support children and families?
