Wonderscope Safety Measures

In an effort to protect the health of Wonderscope staff and visitors, the following guidelines have been developed:

  • Museum capacity will be limited to 75 visitors. Floor monitors will ensure the museum does not exceed this number as well as regulate the number of visitors in each exhibit area at one time.
  • Play surfaces and playthings will be thoroughly disinfected with a virucidal cleansing solution at regular intervals.
  • The entire museum will continue to be professionally cleaned every night with hospital grade cleansers.
  • Hand sanitizers will be available for visitors throughout the museum.
  • The following will not be available: plush toys, swings, big blue blocks, the water room, and drinking fountains (please bring your own bottled water).
  • There will be no on-site programming upon reopening; we will let you know when programs will be offered again.

Stay Updated

The safety of our staff, members, and guests is a high priority. We feel the measures we have put in place will help keep us all safe. We will continue to monitor new developments related to the COVID-19 and modify our museum experience as appropriate.

We are excited to see you all back! Follow us Facebook and Instagram for updates.
