Guest Responsibilities
  • The safety of your family is our top priority. Given the large number of young children we serve who have not yet been able to receive the vaccine, all guests age 3 and over are still required to wear a mask or face covering indoors at the Museum, even if they are fully vaccinated or had COVID-19. Masks/face coverings must be cloth or disposable medical masks, fully cover the nose and mouth, and worn at all times indoors unless seated at a designated table. Face shields and mesh masks are not accepted. Masks may be removed in Joy Park. Medical exemptions are accepted - please notify the front desk of your exemption status upon arrival.
  • If you or a family member are feeling sick and/or have symptoms related to the COVID-19 virus, please stay home. We look forward to welcoming you when you feel better.
