Health and Safety Information

Welcome Back to the Museum!

We have spent the past several weeks improving our exhibits, performing facility upgrades, and deep cleaning the Museum, but we have missed seeing you here!  We are excited to be open again and to see your smiling faces and hear the sounds of giggles and adventure as you explore our exhibits.  

Same Museum, New Procedures to Keep Everyone Safe.

The health and safety of our guests, staff members, and volunteers are our top priority.  Working with our museum partners and associations from throughout the country, our leadership team has worked to develop and implement new procedures to ensure a safe visit for you and your family.  

Please Read These Guidelines As You Plan Your Next Visit.

  • The Museum is operating at a 50% capacity.  Though advanced tickets are not required at this time, we strongly encourage large groups to contact the Museum prior to visiting.  

  • The Den presented by Beacon Credit Union educational area is temporarily closed.  We are working to safely open this space as soon as possible.

  • Every exhibit is thoroughly cleaned daily and as needed throughout the day.  Specific exhibits may be temporarily closed for more extensive cleaning from time to time.   

  • Everyone is expected to follow social distancing requirements.  Signage is posted throughout the Museum as a reminder. 

  • Face masks are required for all visitors ages 2 and older (unless medically unable to wear a mask).

  • If you are not feeling well, please stay home.  You can view the Museum's sick person policy here.

Here's What You Can Expect From Us.

  • Limited capacity: We have capped the number of guests allowed in the Museum at one time to ensure plenty of space for all visitors to spread out. 

  • Enhanced cleaning: New cleaning protocols include frequent disinfecting of all high-touch surfaces. Each exhibit will be thoroughly cleaned daily, and more frequently as the demand requires.

  • Access to cleaning supplies: We have positioned numerous hand sanitizing stations throughout the Museum and placed sanitizing wipes in key areas.

  • Staff and Volunteer health checks: All staff, volunteers, and contractors will be screened daily upon entry to the Museum and will be required to wear a mask at all times.

Should you have any questions or concerns about our cleaning practices or policies please contact Mitch Figert at
