The health and safety of our visitors and staff is our top priority. The new admission process we have put in place for our reopening was done so for the following reasons:

  • Online reservations will allow for contact-free entry.
  • Limiting the number of visitors at one time allows for recommended physical distancing. Each time slot will be limited to 75 visitors.


All visitors at the time of reservation will be asked to review and accept a health policy and code of conduct, which can be reviewed here and at the time of reservation.

In effort so support families, we have created online learning resources for families to play together and to support learning at home. For these resources, please visit Parent Resources and the Children’s Museum’s Facebook Page

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?
