Children’s Museum Membership

The Children’s Museum Board of Directors has made the very difficult decision to keep the Children’s Museum closed until 2021.

What does this mean for your membership?

All memberships that were active on March 13, 2020, when the Children’s Museum closed to the public, will be frozen, or paused, during this closure, and will restart when the Children’s Museum reopens in 2021. This means that if your membership had three (3) months remaining when we closed, you will have three (3) months left when we reopen. If you had recently purchased it and had 11 months remaining, you will still have 11 months when we reopen.

Additionally, we will apply two (2) extra months to memberships purchased before April 13, 2020, to show our appreciation for your patience during this challenging time.

Member support means so much to us, and we want to ensure there is every chance to visit and take advantage of all the membership benefits. Expiration dates will be adjusted once the reopening date is set.
