Dear Museum Friends:

The well-being of our visitors, staff, volunteers, and neighbors are always of utmost importance to us, so the Children's Museum is temporarily closed in compliance with health officials monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Museum will continue to post updates about the upcoming schedule as well as suggestions for at-home activities for kids on funmuseum.org and facebook.com/funmuseum.

Individuals and groups registered for an upcoming event, field trip, or party are asked to check your email for updates from the Museum. 

We look forward to welcoming you and your children back to the Museum soon!

In the meantime…. Be Safe…Be Healthy (wash those hands)…Be Playful.

weekly/monthly programs (to resume after temporary closure):

 Included with museum admission/membership.
Registration is not required for these weekly programs but classes may fill due to room capacity and limited supplies. Please plan to arrive a few minutes early. Parental involvement is expected. No classes on Holiday weeks. Most appropriate for ages 1 to 7.
