Every year Wonderscope closes for fall cleaning. This year we will be remodeling three exhibit rooms in addition to deep cleaning. In order to do so, we will be closed starting Friday, September 19 and we will re-open on Thursday, September 25. We are sorry for any inconveniences and continually appreciate your support!

** Due to unforeseen renovation circumstances, we are unable to open the museum tomorrow. Instead, we will remain closed on Thursday and Friday in order to prepare the museum for its re-opening on Saturday, September 27 at the normal operating hours of 10:00 am - 5:00 pm. We are sorry for any inconveniences, but we hope to see you on Saturday for Smithsonian Magazine's Museum Day Live´╗┐! Click here to download your ticket for two free admissions that day! **
