Prepare for Your Visit

  • Face coverings:  All visitors ages 2 and older will be required to wear a mask/face covering. Masks must be worn while inside the Museum during your play duration time. (Face shields are acceptable to those with health restrictions.)

  • Social Distancing: We encourage and promote social distancing  while playing on exhibits and exploring the Museum. We ask parents/adults to encourage children to wait their turn by following our floor decals or "waiting points" near each exhibit.

  • Food and Drinks: Temporarily food will not be allowed to be consumed inside the Museum, and we will limit the amount of tables available in our patio area. We will allow water bottles in the Museum, but ask all visitors to respect other parties and drink them at appropriate times and areas. Water fountains will be closed.

  • Our Welcome Center: All visitors will visit our Welcome Center before exploring the Museum. There is a handwashing station and a welcome video to watch upon entry. We encourage all guests to wash and sanitize their hands before, during and after playing in the Museum. 

  • Unaccompanied Adults: The Museum defines an accompanied adult as a caregiver who accompanies a child to the Museum. An unaccompanied adult is defined as any person over the age of 18 who is not accompanied by a child. For the safety and security of our visitors, the Museum only allows visits by unaccompanied adults on pre-arranged terms.
