How We're Staying Safe

  • OUR CLASSROOM

    • We have taken down some walls in our education center. With more space, we have added tables placed at least 6 ft. apart with seats being 4.5-6 ft. apart.
    • We allow up to 15 students per session. We ask that families limit the adults that come to one adult per family.
    • We will have enough tables for families to sit together at a single table. We know that some families are interacting with each other in their personal lives so if you want to sit together, that is allowed.
    • We will have materials grouped per child. When extra materials are needed, a museum staff person will gather those materials.
  • CLEANING

    • Both hand sanitizer and soap and water will be available for families to use as their discretion.
    • Tables and chairs will be cleaned after every program.
    • All materials touched will be cleaned after the program.
    • We are using 80% isopropyl alcohol, Virex, and cleaning wipes to clean items after use.
  • ADDITIONALLY

    • Masks are recommended for visitors ages 2 and older and are provided to visitors who would like them.
    • The museum is closed to the public on Mondays and Tuesdays. We will still visit the galleries as it connects with our program content. This allows us to be the only people in the galleries, beyond museum staff.
