Due to concerns about the health and safety of our visitors and staff, the Museum has been closed from March 2020 until a partial reopening on April 16. We took special precautions and enhanced our already robust cleaning and sanitation procedures. We increased the frequency with which we clean and sanitize our exhibits, movable props and toys throughout the day, and we temporarily closed some exhibit areas to ensure proper safety, social distancing, and sanitization protocols could be maintained. Current exhibit closures include: Alphabet Trail, The Big Climber, Bubble-Ology, Zap! Theater & HealthWise.


We are now happy to report that we will resume full operations on June 29, 2021!  We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to ensure that “Play Time” at KidSenses will, as always, continue to be “Safe Time.”


In the meantime KidSenses will be operating at reduced capacity. To secure your spot in advance, you may purchase tickets here.  This is to ensure that visitation does not exceed a safe capacity allowing for proper social distancing and sanitation procedures.

Before visiting, please familiarize yourself with our updated policies & procedures. If you have trouble viewing this document, online, use the link to download the 1 page document.
